As Promised, a Soprano Surprise ... and an All-Women Gloria

How to distract with aplomb (see last week and, I guess, the week before that ...)

And, below, is one of the reasons I needed to show the soprano - my choir (sadly not the Women of the Pieta) is singing Vivaldi's Gloria on Sunday, along with a Mendelssohn Cantata and the first half of The Messiah.  Bliss on a stick.

(BBC4 programme of Vivaldi's Gloria 
performed by an all-female orchestra and choir in the Pieta in Venice. 
Complementary to the BBC4 programme "Vivaldi and the Women of the Pieta".)

Should have said, my choir is the Dundee Choral Union and the concert is on Sunday 15 Dec. at 7:30 in the Caird Hall. If you're in striking distance, I hope to see you there!

Good grief! Didn't disappoint - all you had promised! But ... why?

And good luck with your Gloria-ing!

Why? Probably because she could -- and I love the way she runs back on the stage: hooray for such energy and grace.
Delightful distractions for us all!
