choral weekend

so i have survived the weekend.. :) it was fairly busy. we had 3 concerts altogether - two with vox and one with tirnavia. on friday we sang in brno, it was about an hour long performance in a church, with about 40 people in the audience so it was pretty small and kinda nice. in spite of that though i didn't really enjoy the concert so much, i was just tired and wanted it to be over.. saturday wasdifferent though. i was even more tired (no wonder, after an almost three-hour-long trip to slovakia) bu7t excited.. we did a piece by mikulas schneider trnavsky that was never ever sung before. i is a mass that was written in 1945 and was never completed by the author himself but by his granddaughter who found the materials with losts of musical ideas that were not put together and after a long and tiring research, she was able to put it all together. the result is a great piece perhaps about half-an-hour long for an orchestra, a mixed choir and four soloists. after the concert, that also included another great piece-requiem by g. faure, we recorded schneider's mass and there was an afterparty starting midnight. after about 20 hours spent in slovakia (which included 3 hours of sleep) i went back to brno, only to have another concert, this time in a cave in moravsky kras region. this was a really nice experience, even though there was only 8°C and about 90 per cent humidity in the cave. i almost crashed today from being so tired but it was a nice weekend after all.. :)
