How wonderful to be singing Handel again! The tenors and basses were fantastic in the two Coronation Anthems we started practising yesterday. The sopranos demonstrated how to go from rubbish to good in 60 seconds (okay, maybe 5 minutes), and the altos showed that they really are altos and not potential sopranos (we're not falling for that trick, Gary!) by failing miserably to reach top F sharp when asked to try the soprano part. Nice to have a chance to catch up with people over a glass of wine afterwards too.
