Today was a memorable day, and it will go down in history as one of my favorites. I accomplished a life goal today. Under the direction of David L. from St. John the Beloved Catholic Church, I and nearly 100 people sang the motet Spem in Alium by Thomas Tallis. The motet is a masterwork, which displays the genius of the man, and provides no small challenge to even professional musicians to pull off well. It is written for 40 individual voices, divided into 8 choirs of soprano, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass. My line was choir 5, baritone: out of 40 voices, I was voice 24.
All I can say is wow! It was an absolute blast!
