A few weeks ago at church we started diving into Crucifixus from Bach’s Mass in B Minor.
You can give it a listen here. Sorry, couldn’t find a recording with an audio track I liked on YouTube.
It’s got to be one of the dreariest tunes I’ve heard… and one of the hardest I’ve sung.
We’re aiming to do it on Palm Sunday… if we can get it sounding good enough in time.
We’d been spending time on sections of it, but last night we sang the whole thing through for the first time. It was kind of shaky at times, but I think we’ll get that kicked out of it in time.
If we don’t have them kicked out, we’ll just not do it.
