Advent Concert

Last night we went to a concert in one of the old middle age churches in Paderborn. It was the final year concert given by music students. It was organised partly by JD's old guitar teacher who we had a drink with after the concert.

There were a few amazing performances and strangely quite a few of the pieces were sung in English. One being that one made famous by Anthony Callea (Aust. Idol guy), Prayer or something like that, and hearing 2 amazing singers sing it I realised how incredible he alone sings that song. And then there was a terrible version of an already hideous Yentyl song. I wanted to scream. Barbra would not have been impressed at all. But overall there were some songs and pieces of music that made me get goosebumps and teary and sitting in a catholic church that is quite plain and unadorned and very beautiful just before Xmas seemed like the perfect thing to do on a freezing Tuesday night.
