Singing

Somehow, I have found myself singing the past two Sundays.

Yesterday was our ‘Humor in Music’ concert.  I sang the “Eight Musical Insults” I wrote twenty years ago for Michael Henley, and then I performed Ben Moore’s “I’m glad I’m not a tenor.”  And I got some laughs.

Last week was a totally different concert, as we celebrated the Webster centennial with a concert that featured music that could have been performed in 1915 at Thompson House.  Alison Rolf and I performed some Elgar music for violin and piano — music dear to my heart.  And then Daniel Schene and I sang music by Ivor Novello, an early 20th-century British crooner and composer.  His most famous piece is “Keep the home fires burning,” written in 1914 as the British troops were going off to the Great War.  We closed the recital with that piece.

Leaving for recital on Sunday
