Sunday's performance was a real treat for me, particularly the Bach. As I was playing, I kept thinking of the amount of time and rehearsals everyone put into the cantata, and that sentiment was quite moving. Of course, the music itself was very moving, and I am lucky in that my organ part was easy enough so that I could really listen to all of you.
While you may feel that the performance wasn't perfect (what performance ever is?), I can assure you that, at least from my vantage point, the performance was a real joy and very uplifting. Sure, Messiah is a wonderful thing and you sang it very well, but I am particularly pleased with how well the Bach went. I wish we could do it again.
I wish you all a joyful holiday season, and I thank you for all that you gave to make Sunday's performance a highlight of my year.
