Singing well is hard work!

Well, another day of the colloquium is nearing an end. We practiced polyphony this morning, had Mass, then after lunch, practiced Gregorian chant. I'm worn out! In a few moments, there will be a lecture by Father Skeris, followed by dinner. However, I confess I will skip out on dinner, and join a friend in attending an O's game. I'm sure they'll be really impressed when I use the Solemnes method to chant the National Anthem.

But the question on everyone's mind is: where's Father Jim Tucker, of Dappled Things? He promoted this event, and lives just across the Potomac in the Arlington Diocese. Surely it is not true that he is overwhelmed by the prodigious talent on display here? We were looking forward to his musical stylings, said to be "unique." Perhaps when he heard this event was in "the nation's capital, he headed south on I-95, and is wandering, confused, about Richmond? If you see him there, please send him on his way back north.

How can you be blogging when you have to study for your tests on Fr. Skeris' lectures?

Father Martin Fox said...

Test, eh? No one mentioned a test . . .

Oh well; and what bad thing happens if I don't do well on the test?

Failure in test = bolt of lightening

When he heard you were attending he knew there could only be one star of the show.

I hope you pay him a visit - blogging Priests should always visit each other when in the locale.

Failing the test has far worse consequences than mere lightning.

You will be forced to observe 5 Masses celebrated at the Paulist Center/Boston--OR 10 at Georgetown's student chapel.

That'll teach you...
