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.
Soooo funny, and so irreverent!
I am also a big fan of the music of Wesley Snipes. Especially his Demolition Man Variation. Thank you for the comment on my place.
Incredible (I'll have to watch again with my eyes shut to see if it's any different).
Purcell turns in his grave!
But at least that particular congregation understand the hemiola in bar 7 which in my experience throws off many a congregation. As does the penultimate line in "Guide me O Thou great Redeemer", which most insist on screaming out the high note for. And plenty of other ones in Christmas carols. In fact, Mr Can Bass, I'd like to hear your own compilation of common musical errors to be found in church—choral or congregational!
I'm sure you would, dear boy, I'm sure you would. But time - and space - prevent me even starting: there are just too many. Very impressed you recognised the hemiola, though. Jolly good show!
