I'll be singing as part of the 9:00 PM service at the First Parish Church of Stow and Acton, in the center of Stow, Massachusetts. We're doing several particularly cool pieces, including Distler's "Lo How a Rose" and an arrangement of "Do You Hear What I Hear?" in which the bass and tenor sections get almost all the melody. (If you're not a chorister, you may not realize how rare that is. Or how much a baritone like myself appreciates it!)

The music actually starts at 8:45, and all are welcome to attend!

My husband says that in Barbershop, baritone is referred to as the garbage part. So I understand COMPLETELY.

...I think we may be singing the same arrangement!

We're also singing a very cool arrangement of "Silent Night" with lyrics in English, Spanish, German, Korean, and Swahili.

I would love to hear that arrangement. I prefer deep voices to high ones (a good contralto sends shivers down my spine). That's one reason I was a cellist in my school orchestra -- the music teacher wanted to put me on the violin, but I don't like screechy things. :-)
