Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Hey, guess what I forgot!?

Last night was one of Oldest's choir concert!

I actually remembered it, on the way home last night. It was their Christmas concert, and it was held over at the Methodist church again. Same accompanist guy again, too, but this time they did close down the lid on the pianoforte so that it wasn't as loud. (Although it was still a little too loud for my taste, part of the reason being the shape and size of the choir area.)

Anyway, it was a very lovely concert, although I think the stress from the Disney trip and the cold-n-flu season has had an effect on them. Most of the songs had some insanely high notes, and the girls were at the edge of their comfort zone, and you could hear it. Ashley and three other girls got to do some semi-solos during If Ye Would Hear the Angels Sing, and they didn't quite pull it off.

They all did best on the a cappella work (or I'm just prejudiced), but their rendition of Carol of the Bells made me get all weepy it was so good. Likewise Angels We Have Heard on High and Round the Glory Manger, both of which were perfomed by the older kids in the chamber choir.

Great stuff.
