R finally set up a double date with his co-worker. It took only 2 months, but that’s okay. I felt like I had already been on a date with them (or at least his wife) when we watched her perform in a local play.
A thespian! A real life person, that I can actually touch and feel, who appreciates productions & art as much as me.
I didn’t need to explain during the choir performance why certain notes made my throat hurt, or feel self-conscious for just barely holding back tears throughout others.
She got it. And that made me happy.
At the end of the concert, candles were passed around. R lit mine and I felt united with him for a moment.
And then the congregation sang Silent Night together.
All in all, a great date night. Not to mention the cheap white wine I brought over to their house. That’s right, just keeping it classy.
But one other thing made me smile that night: finding a new song in which to indulge. Laudamus Te by Mozart. When the harpsichord starting playing, my heart lept and I thought, Oh my gosh.. is this Mozart?? But if you read the comments below, I was way off. This was not Mozart, but Vivaldi. Thank you, Hazel.
Note to self: Learn that the name written in a choir concert program is probably for the lyrics.
Below is Laudamus Te sung at the concert. These aren’t the two girls who actually sang it. No, they were left in a pile of ashes after my eyes burned envy into them. Too beautiful, they were.
But this is still wonderful.
this song is beautiful Carrie, thanks for sharing..this is by Vivaldi though..is there a Mozart one? i'm just confused and trying to find it..;(
You know what? You're right. Like the intro to that youtube video didn't directly say that. I'm dense. But there is a mozart version:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw7pSbdbHVk
