ACJC versus VJC
14th May; I realised that I didn't post anything about VJ's concert, since it was pretty late already when I got back and sadly, there was the unappealing element of school the next day. So I procrastinated and didn't post until today after I noticed that I needed to post about AC's concert as well.
This year was also their 25th anniversary, so the repertoire for the night consisted of chosen songs that they have sung in their history, mostly competition pieces though. There was a wide range of styles but I found some songs to be pretty boring though the choir was decent in portraying the various emotions behind the songs. I remember liking their version of 'O Magnum Mysterium' as well as 'Confitemini Domini'. Their two syf pieces were also very nicely done. There were also a few chinese songs, mostly sung by their alumni.
... I like their repertoire! Why don't we ever get to sing such songs... instead of all those loud, tribalish types of songs. Haha, I want to borrow Kim's scores, at least for Kyrie and Piyutim. Lol, need to find time to meet up with Kim to mug as well. Personally, I prefer their alumni to the current choir, they sound much better. I remember preferring the alumni's songs as well during last year's concert. Also bumped into Shin Fen who was there with her friends.
Yeah, I sort of noticed that choirs like to reuse their concert titles, like VJ having their Symphony of Voices and AC using An Evening with Friends, etc. Why? Hmm.
