No time left to post, but I wanted to share with you one piece I get to sing this week: Gabriel Faure's Pie Jesu. I absolutely love this piece!
Our talented choir director normally plays violin, but she brings her viola when we do this piece. The first time I sang it, I hadn't heard the viola because she had forgotten to bring it to practice. The loveliness of the viola music was so intense that I almost forgot to resume singing at one point, I was so caught up in listening! :)
This version is a little operatic, but the young singer has an absolutely exquisite voice. Enjoy!
