Hello from Singapore where "The Haze" is really palpable.  In neighboring Indonesia they are slashing and burning and Singapore is shrouded in a haze which has a significant effect on the general well-being.  When we arrived our host advised us to stay indoors. We did of course go out to the Esplanade which is nearby for the Community Sing which this time, as last, is a feature of our residency here.   This time it took place in the wonderful concert hall where we will sing this evening.

62 choral singers came and worked on "Draw on Sweet Night", "Ego sum panis vivis" and "Deep River" with us, led by Fred.   They were a very motivated and prepared group and we enjoyed the brief time we had with them.
