Life goal accomplished today

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!
