The highlight of the concert may have been Angel Fire, a new carol by Steven Sametz. I'm not kidding when I call it new; it was commissioned for us by one of the CCS board members, and tonight was the world premiere. It's a challenging piece, but we performed it well. The composer was in the audience, and afterward he seemed very pleased by our performance.
Our weakest piece was Hodie by James Stuart Grant. We completely pooched one of our entrances about halfway through. I don't know that anyone noticed, but from my perspective it was pretty bad. And there were some other sections in the same piece that could use some extra work tomorrow. Coincidentally, like Angel Fire, Hodie also was commissioned by the CCS, twenty years ago.
