I won a prize!!!

On today's Concert Programme at 7 30 am it was announced that Alan Girvan from Dunedin had answered last week's quiz question correctly. Prize is a CD of Janacek's opera Jenufa, which NZ Opera is performing ( but not in Dunedin.)

If our choir ever wants to do Janacek, there is the Glagolitic Mass. This is a very big noisy work, sung in an ancient Slavonic language. It has a huge Organ solo, so if we did it David would have to decide whether he wanted to play the solo or leave it to Rachael and Norma.

It is also a big sing for the soloists, in fact the tenor part is so high you may see the tenor's veins standing out from his forehead.
