was able to attend the good friday service at the up crl earlier. the choir sounded beautifully, presenting a cantata of the 7 last words of christ (by haydn). butch de juan (idol!) masterfully led the choir. the acoustics of the church is just magnificent, i wished i had good recording equipment to capture the choir’s singing. parang nakikinig ka lang sa recording, i say. it was that good. and the quartet soloists were fantastic, which included friendship mezzo soprano aggie barredo. masterpiece!
last year we were at boracay enjoying the beach. i did have a pang of guilt not being able to go to church instead. so this year, im happy, resting and being able to stay in manila and going to church during the holy week.
