Amen Doug ... and my thoughts were greatly reinforced after viewing Nelson's little exegeses on the Bach fugue. The fact that he had SO much to say about the fugual subject in question, made me think what he could have possibly have said as an analysis of the Praise Song I mentioned in my post. From Bach to Shlock ... the two are light centuries apart.
My name is Paulo Faustini and I just joined this interesting website. How do you like it?
I am posting information regarding the a cappella program in Umbria, Italy, that I have founded 4 years ago. It is called Umbrian Serenades - Choral and Cultural Tastings in the Green Heart of Italy. We take choral enthusiasts to perform in breath-taking cathedrals in Italy, such as the Duomo in Spoleto (where we are based), the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, and this year the main cathedral in Orvieto. The program lasts about 13 days and participants get to live as locals in the medieval town of Spoleto, with day trips to nearby towns. We also include a cultural event every day, be it a wine tasting, cheese, tasting, a cooking class, walking tour with a professional local guide, etc. This summer we will have a fully costumed medieval closing dinner! It is a life transforming experience that we provide as it includes all of our passions: teaching, choral music, singing, art history, travel, wine, food, etc.!
We are in the process of accepting applications and hearing people until we have a vocal chamber group of 24. Non-singing travel companions are welcome to join as well. Here is a link to our website for more information: http://www.umbrianserenades.com/about/index.html
If you or any choristers of yours should have any interest in our unique and off-the-beaten-path choral and cultural experience, please do not hesitate to contact me through this website, or our website, or at firstname.lastname@example.org, toll free (888) 664-2355.
All the best to you as we enter into the holiday season!
