At rehearsal tonight, I got a little more information about our Messiah performance. It seems the NSO's program director agreed to let Bruno Weill do it in German, but fail to relay that decision to certain other parts of the organization, like marketing. And when marketing found out, they said, more or less, over our dead bodies. At which point Maestro Weill pulled out.

So tonight we had our first English-language Messiah rehearsal. And you know, singing Messiah with 120 really good singers is really something. "And the glory of the Lord," indeed.
