    "Tour" ... wow, sounds like a dream. Unfortunately, our choirmaster once was too disappointed with his whole choir when he planned (and even paid a large deposit) on a tour to north France, and in the end only a handful of people were really willing to go along. Now he no longer plans anything like that for us any more. :(

    hey, that's great!
    my guess is you are the third from the right, front row. (it's a really small picture, so I'm probably wrong...)

    edit: third from the LEFT, front row

    You are GOOD!
    The photo is tiny, indeed, but yes: that's me.

    And Battou, brave attempt at having a machine translator help you understand the text, I wonder if you now do?!?!?! ;)

    The translation of the last names of persons has me in hysterics here, like that of our choirmaster, Andreas WinterOwner :)lol: ), or that of the organ player (who was bad, by the way ... :( ), Sylvia CloseYielded :)biglaugh: ). "Missa in angustiis" ... fair in distress ... has me in stitches here :lmao: !

    On the other hand, despite the fact that I am a translator by profession ... a-hem ... I am too lazy just now to really translate that text for you :oops: :( :er: :meh: ... sorry. Maybe later today. Let's see...

    No, I had a very hard time with it, hence my saying I tried.

    Not trying to take credit for the translation but understanding it. Even the parts I could read where so scrambled in relation to the way I am accustomed to reading I got lost quickly.

    Well, then this is just for you, Battou:

    My translation of the text.
    The more closely I read it the more obvious it became to me that the author knows next to nothing about music. He's one of those wanna-be pros in the world of cultural critics who tries and tries but ... oh well.

    Let's see if the other paper have come out with their article as yet and what that one's like. Hang on.

    lol I agree, I admit I know nothing about music, but even I can see the despiration research tonality in that.

    And thank you for the re-translation.

    don't worry about the writing of this critic; any publicity is good publicity right?

    Yes, I guess you are right, Pascal :D ... and what would you expect of a cultural event critic of a place like this - those who were here for the North Germany Meet-Up in May know how rural it is around here, we're basically at the back of beyond. I wonder when the other paper's going to issue their article?

    Well... Music critics are like a necessary evil. For most, it's just a living, you know...

    Speaking about the critics, I have a funny story to tell (sorry for the short hijacking):

    Famous (or less so) composer Max Reger, who wrote music in Bach's style without much success, had a work for orchestra performed in a big city in Germany. The next day, the reviewer panned Reger, deeming his music as boring (which is mostly true, mind you...). Max Reger replied with a letter which said:

    "Dear Sir,

    I sit in the smallest room of my house and I have your review in front of me. Soon shall be behind me!

    Regards,

    Max Reger"

    Congrats on a successful concert!
