Biber’s ready!

We just finished our final rehearsal for the glorious Biber Missa Salisburgensis. Over the course of the last week we’ve all come to love this beautiful music, and it will be very hard to let it go after the final note tonight. That’s one of the bittersweet aspects of performance: very often we have to say “farewell” to a work that we have come to know and relish, not knowing when – if ever – we’ll be able to greet it again down the road. But at least we will have Bach’s Mass in B Minor tomorrow. I’d say that’s a comfort!
