asked if I was feeling better, and the answer is a resounding...uh, sorta. On the plus side, no more laryngitis, but on the minus side, everything else hasn't taken off for the hinterlands. Argh. However, I did get a couple of nice gifts this weekend that took my mind off my misery -- a nice surprise from one of the ladies in the Consort, and a gift from my Secret Pal! Since I have to go to rehearsal in under an hour, no pics yet, but all will be revealed in the fullness of time (and sorry, I can't even think of where I lifted the quote from - of course, everyone else lifts that one too and I can't even Google for it).
Next, a meme -- Carmen
tagged me with this one, so here's my go at it:
Total number of music files on your computer
: Only about 123MB (that's four hours) on this one, and probably about the same on my notebook and again on my work computer. I haven't ripped my massive CD collection yet because it is a daunting prospect, and because right now I am only listening to Carmina Burana, Beethoven's 9th, and Haydn's Heiligmesse and Nelson's Mass on my mp3 player. Yup, those are the concerts I have coming up, how'd you guess? :)
The last cd you bought:
Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, by the Berlin Choir and Orchestra (Gramophone's Choice edition)
The last song you listened to before reading this message
, by the Newsboys
Name 5 songs you listen to often or that mean something to you
Antifreeze - Asylum Street Spankers -- a very random song that reminds me why I love this band
Jesus Freak - DC Talk -- while I don't like rap, DC Talk combines genres in a very cool way and reminds me what my main focus in life should be
Daddy's Hands - Holly Dunn (although I think I have a version by Pam Tillis) -- my father died when I was in college and this song always reminds me of him
Dona Nobis Pacem -- can't remember the composer of the version I have running through my head, but it is a very simple version and very poignant as well.
All Around My Hat (folk song) -- this is a song I learned for Madrigals, and it suits my voice and for whatever reason, makes me happy to sing at random moments.
I could go on and on and on with the music thing, being that music is rather central to my life :) but I think I'll stop here. As far as three people to whom to pass on the quiz, I'm not sure if any of my blog-friends have not already had the opportunity (although Lisa would be the most likely one to pick up the gauntlet :).
All right, now I absolutely must get out the door to rehearsal - so ciao, bellas!
