This month’s selections:

Cloths of Heaven by Randall Stroope


Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.



O occhi manza mia by Orlando di Lasso

Oh eyes of my beloved,
Oh eyes of my dear love,
‘neath arched brows glancing,
Oh face like moonbeams glowing in fair beauty.
If in thy memory, my radiant jewel,
One little thought you’ll hold for me,
’twill make me content.


All You Need is Love, Choir! Choir! Choir!


Here’s a little Beatles fun…..feel free to sing – or kazoo – along!

I’ve been a member of the OCC since 2004 and, since then, the chorale has been my anchor in good times and bad.  So, although I assumed that the spring 2021 season would have to be cancelled, I admit to being shocked when I received the confirmation email.  Why?  Because I miss the chorale, the music, Allison’s patience, good humor, and amazing talent to teach us, the friends who are in my carpool, and my chorale buddy who has become an important part of my life.  Thursday rehearsals always renewed me, challenged me, freed me from everyday worries and problems, and gave me the chance to sing even if I didn’t always hit the right notes.  And let’s not forget the humor and the laughter!  Because of the chorale, I truly came to experience that “In music, the distance and the nearness of space, the limitless and the limited are all together in one gentle unity that is a comfort and a benefaction to the soul.  For however far the soul may range, in music it is everywhere protected and brought home safely again.” (Max Picard, The World of Silence).

I came to live full time in Provincetown over 30 years ago and soon became a Provincetown Trolley driver, giving 40 minute narrated tours of Provincetown and the National Seashore Park.  I currently do the same work for Mayflower Trolley Co.  So, I talk a lot!

I’d washed ashore from an eclectic life of music, art and theater in Brooklyn and Manhattan in New York City.

I appreciate the wide variety of music genres we draw from to sing for our wonderful audiences here on the cape.  The commitment to our team work and the wonderful energy we create when we sing together is the nourishing juice in my heart that keeps me participating since the onset of the Chorale’s inception, oh so many years ago!  So, now, I also sing a lot!  I love it!
