Next Wednesday night we will be singing three major new compositions for the first time. We're working very hard! Among other things there are the following languages to pronounce properly: English, German, Greek, Italian, Quechua and Arabic. Matt sought out a young Iraqi student who works in his neighborhood to try out pronouncing the several Arab words in Shawn Crouch's piece, one of which is habib, which means love. Now we know. Shawn's piece is to texts written by a former soldier in the Iraq war, interspersed with poetry by Rumi.
