Today I sang with the DomCantorij at the wedding of one of the more devout churchgoers, who had specially asked us to sing and had even put together a list of his favourite pieces from our repertoire that he wanted to hear. So it was that today, in addition to Schütz’s “Stehe auf meine Freundin” and Britten’s “O be joyful”, we performed the clapping music by Steve Reich. If you don’t know it, check it out:
We did slower than in this video, but it still sounded great! And it’s tons of fun to do. I’m gonna ask Douglas if we can do it on tour in Europe.
