I'm a (lay) choral-vicar in a 'not-too-bad' cathedral choir. That means I sing for a living. And when I'm not singing, I'm trying to teach others how to sing. It pays the rent. Ho hum.

Fantasy Music List
What ho, everybody! Can Bass here. Great news. Following a record-breaking choir rehearsal yesterday (the boy was, apparently, 'on a promise') we had rather longer than usual to thirst after righteousness in the Adam and Eve. Anyway, to cut a very long story short (I must be brief - I've got another student due in half an hour) after about the fifth pint somebody suggested that we might create an ideal music list, one the boy could simply 'cut and paste' when the Precentor next came knocking (one that we could could post of the cathderal website rather than the lamentable effort hastily assembled by the DoM when he is here). So, gentlemen (and ladies, possibly) here it is: Fantasy Music List. The blog you have been waiting for! The idea is that we 'sign up' co-authors from the blog-o-sphere, who can post their efforts on this site. I've no idea how you do that (one of the choral scholars did explain, but it was punctuated by his need to vomit and thus lost a little in interpretation). So, if you know how, do let me know. And if you want to, and I can, I will.
I'm a choral vicar in a not-too-bad cathedral choir although it could be better, if you ask me, if the Dean and Chapter bite the bullet and dismiss the lamentable failure of an organist. But that's another story...
