I have a copy of the concert's CD

I've listened to it about three times over the last week, and my opinion keeps changing. At first it was "we sound terrible!" but I generally get more fond of music. The more I hear it the more I like it (this is subject to a certain limit, I mean, and now I want to draw a graph.)

First, something is definitely up with "Zadok the Priest"; I'm not sure why there is so much alto? Perhaps it's where the microphone thingy was placed. It's strange, because the other pieces don't seem to have the same problem. We went a bit slow, I thought, and weren't as crisp on the 'rejoices' as we could have been. The first part was still epic as in memory.

Definitely had some confusion there on "Sicut cervus". Everyone's moving appropriately, and adding expression! Just not together.

I am very, very pleased at one piece though. "Exsultate Deo" was the one where I was afraid that I could hear my own voice (HORRORS) but the sopranos scale up (literally) to 'blowing out speakers high' so fast that the alto 1s are barely audible. YES. EXCELLENT.

I stand by my assertion that we have an amazing pianist, because AMAZING. I want to be her.
