Last night in rehearsal, I was sleepy, but kept reminding myself to enjoy every minute, because there's only so much time with this piece left. And we had some great minutes. The music has shape now, and flows light and swift, surge and retreat. It's like flying.
I love Bach and I love singing and I love this piece especially, but a little break is lovely. I think I will try to listen to some non-Bach today, to temporarily push the endless Bach soundtrack out of my head.
