Preaching to the Choir

My Inmates really sounded great today! We sang "Come, Come, Ye Saints." We had at least a half-dozen men who had never sung with us before this week, and they sang SO well.

Next should be a fun arrangement I made of "Master, the Tempest is Raging." I will try to get a recording of that on here for you to hear. I have to make it myself, because the prison will not allow any recording to be taken out the gate.

I still get nervous now and then, but not because I'm directing criminals, but because after 15 years of leading a women's choir, I am still getting used to men's voices!

It has sure been a lot of fun, though. I was as excited about this calling as any I've ever been given.

Well, I'm sure your voice will thank you. No more singing falsetto! ;)

Just looking at you blog photo...are you sure you were never an inmate, too? I swear I had you in my class at the jail. :0)

Oops, I really can spell YOUR.
