Our organist and choirmaster, Jean Touhy, got a rewarding job offer to work at a church in Chicago. Since 2001, she worked with Merry and I as part of the “small group choir” we called The Schola Cantorum. Our last singing mass was 10am on Sunday, and we had a last get-together party at Kurt’s house (a tenor) two weeks ago.
The music ministry is up in the air right now, but we will likely miss the likes of Gumpelzhaimer, Tallis, Proulx, and Gregorian Chant. At least I got a few recordings of it using my camera. I always wanted my Dad to hear how we sounded. When I can filter out the video and make some MP3s, I may post them here.
