Yesterday the university chamber choir performed with the university orchestra at Marylhurst. And guess what? I'm part of the choir! I was oh so amazed to have been performing with an orchestra, and am still amazed that I got the opportunity. I guess being a music major has its perks!
We did Vilvaldi's "Gloria" songs, of which mom recorded three. I uploaded those three to YouTube, and you may view them below. They're the first things I've uploaded to YouTube.
My favorite one she recorded (and one of my top two favorites overall) is "Cum Sancto Spiritu," which unfortunately she didn't get the very beginning of or the last couple pages of it either. Oh well. Technical difficulties I guess. Those things happen.
By the way, from this whole thing I've picked up only one Latin word: miserere. Care to guess what it means? Yep, exactly what it sounds like: misery. I find it slightly amusing that that's the one word I picked up, and whose meaning was explained to us.
EDIT: I have to add, it can be sort of difficult for me to listen to these because I want to start singing along.
