Luckily, we managed to shake off whatever affected our performance in the first half in time for the second. Angel Fire and A Child My Choice were stronger Monday than they had been Sunday, and we sang Hodie better than we'd ever done it. Yay!
Thus ended our Christmas concerts. I think they went pretty well, considering our preparation time was reduced by a third thanks to having to spend part of each rehearsal working on Messiah. And whatever flaws I noticed were aparently not picked up on by the audience, nor by the reporter who reviewed the concert in yesterday's Washington Post.
