Tonight it struck me again: What a lot of change there has been in the people who sing at the Berkeley weekly singing! I looked around and noticed that quite a few of the regular singers who came tonight didn’t sing with us two years ago: several singers moved to the Bay are from somewhere else, several who are new to Sacred Harp singing. And quite a few former regulars were missing, people who have moved away, or can’t come Monday evenings any more.
We’ll see many of the missing people at all-day singings; in the Bay area, the all-day singings seem to me to be what provide the continuity over the years.
Posted a week late due to heavy work schedule.
