Stanford in G

I was so terribly pleased and privileged to sing the baritone solo this evening at Evensong in the C.V. Stanford G-major canticles.  This is one of the most glorious baritone solos ever written, in my humble opinion.

Here’s a recording of a British choir — Winchester Cathedral, under David Hill — singing this wonderful work!

Thankful

On this day, I am thankful for:

  • William Byrd
  • Chef Boyardee pizza.  I ate one this weekend.  No single food takes me back to my childhood like this.  (We never had frozen pizzas at my house.)
  • Samson the Feist
  • Students who energize and invigorate and challenge me
  • The ability to sing
  • Christmas trees
  • KU basketball
  • Downton Abbey
