Recording a CD -- Cantate Domino -- Part 1 - RAIN

Unloading in the rain
          Six sessions -- that's all it took. 
the Mic

Six grueling, hours-long, standing in place -- awaiting the passage of rain, cars, trucks and airplanes -- recording sessions. 

Everyone was so wonderful -- so patient and so forgiving of  the hardships of feet and backs. No complaints, no whining, no crying -- what an amazing group of people I am so privileged to sing with!
Discussing our options due to rain-out

Now, for the truth...

No -- I'm kidding -- everyone WAS amazing -- and we had a ton of fun too.
Helen, Josee and Paul spend quality time

Binders a-waiting
We arrived each session to St. Barnabas on James street ready to sing our 20 rigorously rehearsed  sacred songs over and over -- for hours on end.
Waiting for the rain to stop...

Our first session was Wednesday evening, May 9 - 6:30 to 9:30 -- and we got NOTHING recorded. Nothing usable, unless we decided to change the CD title to 
"Relax with the Sounds of Rain on the Roof -- (and the Stairwell Carollers)"

Well, it was just the first session...

You can pre-order Cantate Domino HERE.

Cantate Domino is dedicated to the memory of Paul Churchill, Tenor, whose voice and heart will be forever remembered.

Cantate Domino will be pressed in October -- if you live in the Ottawa area, you can purchase our CDs directly from choir members. 

You can also
buy them at Ottawa area stores, online, or at our live concerts.
