Gone Chanting

I had a wonderful time during my working vacation at the Church Music Association of America's 2010 Winter Chant Intensive in Charleston, SC. It was what I expected and more; it has whetted my appetite for sacred music and chant even more.

Along with meeting in person Anastatia Crosswell, the 'blogmistress of Kyrie Eleison Me (while registered to be in attendance, had to withdraw for personal reasons), I also introduced myself to Mary Jane Ballou, whose 'blog Sacred Miscellany I have visited a few times. I found out later that Richard Chonak, one of the co-'bloggers at Catholic Light, was also there; I didn't get a chance to meet him. (And it was no one's fault but my own; we were sitting beside each other during the workshop.)

Self-study is a wonderful thing; I am proceeding along those lines. Continuing my education, I will be attending this. I am looking forward to it.

The plane leaves at 7:00 AM tomorrow.
