Friday, Friday!

Friday, Friday, how did you get here so fast???? "Face it Friday" is here, and now I must check my list of goals. It's right here under a stack of papers on my desk. Let's see how I'm doing....umm
1. Nope
2. Nope
3. Nope
4. Nope
5. Definitely Nope
6. Sadly Nope
7. Nope
8. I'm in trouble Nope
9. Nope
10. Making Progress

So, you can see I'm not doing all that great (and this is why I rarely make goals!)

Goal Number 10: Learn the (Latin) words and music to "TE DEUM" by Joseph Hayden.
We had an extra practice last night, and it helped immensely. We practiced the last half of the song which seems a little easier because we sing basically the same phrase over and over with a lot of sixteenth note runs.(FYI: sixteenth notes go really fast). I'm concerned with the first half of the song,which does not have many repeats. But, the concert isn't until May 7, so there is still time, as our director will tell us.

Some people in our community choir are Latin experts and are very particular about the pronunciations. There was a discussion on how to pronounce "in". Surprisingly, in Latin it is pronounced: "eeeen". Me? If I get somewhere in the general vicinity, I'm happy. My theory is, how many people in the audience know Latin? Maybe that's not the right attitude, but that's the way it is. I'm not a serious music student. I just sing for the fun of it.

My defense for the other nine "nopes" is because I was very busy doing inside unpacking and outside yard work. Very, very busy! Very.

Maybe next week will be better, but I'm making no promises!
