This week was crammed with extra bits that distracted me from posting on my usual Monday. In light of the last few “heavy” posts, here are some videos to help get you through your day and week.
This song is one that has been sung at numerous coronations, weddings, and funerals for members of the Royal Family. It’s also one of my favorite pieces — Parry’s “I was glad”.
Another great, rousing work is the Requiem by Maurice Duruflé. His “Sanctus” is an absolute roof-raiser! (And sung by the Yale Glee Club down the road!)
One of the ground-breaking singers in American history is Marian Anderson, an African-American mezzo soprano, who made her Carnegie Hall debut in 1920.
Have a wonderful week!
