Schola Anniversary

Last night our schola celebrated our one year anniversary. Meeting at the home of one of our members, we enjoyed a great evening of chanting (not very much... just enough to sort of call it a rehearsal), eating, drinking and talking. I was very touched by cards and gifts given to me to take with me when we move... a beautiful crystal vase (which was jokingly recommended as a possible wine glass for me -- much better than those dinky glasses usually offered) and a wonderful coffee mug imprinted with the name of Jesus in various languages of the world... I'll drink my coffee from it and think of the wonderful friends I have had the pleasure of getting to know here...

We spoke of music, upcoming events in the parish and diocese, not the least of which is our upcoming Bishop's ordination / installation. We will be anxious to hear how the planning goes (where it will be held, etc.).

It lasted quite a bit later than our normal rehearsals... talking takes much longer than singing! Happy Anniversary, Schola!

Happy Anniversary to you and your schola! Maybe I should forward the list of presents to my schola so they know what to get me next year?

Congratulations from the St. Augustine Schola Cantorae.
