Song of Solomon 8:7 (by Brittney Borowski)

I sang this in high school choir, and at my daddy’s memorial service, my brother and our friends and I performed this.
Miss you Daddy, love you Daddy. (ComebackformeDaddyhowcouldyouleavemeDaddyIthoughtyoulovedmeDaddy)

Sicut Cervus | Palestrina

Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum, ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus.
Like as the hart desireth the water brooks, so my soul longs for you, o God. 

Yes, good.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST PERFECT SONGS EVER WRITTEN BY ANYONE EVER AHHHH I’VE BEEN OBSESSED WITH IT SINCE HIGH SCHOOL IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY

Literally my favorite song/piece of music ever. I miss Chamber Choir. ;_;

(via summersanginme)

Nothing Else Matters - Scala & Kolacny Brothers (originally Metallica)

This song (the original) used to be a favorite of mine.

quite possibly my favorite piece of music of all time. (of all time!)
Palestrina’s Sicut cervus…and it’s a SING A LONG video! No, I haven’t done this 5 times in the past c. 5 hours of being awake. 

Previously mentioned Lamentations of Jeremiah by Z. Randall Stroope. Performed by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Concert Choir. Not the world’s best recording, but the best I could find quickly. Revel in that alto line. Mmm.

Notes

New love

My new love is Oliver Boyd and the Rememberalls.

Also, today has been relatively good. I get to work at the WC again next year (for $!), my application was approved for the apartment I want (cheap, decently cute, super-great location, with a friend), I got compliments on my hair, and I’ve been fairly productive. I don’t feel very freaked out about schoolwork - I am doing alright, and that’s all I can ask for or expect from myself right now. And I cleaned my room. And this morning I had this great moment of, “wow, I’m at university. What a privilege to be able to get a college degree - I am so grateful for this.”

Also, I finally got my University Choirs sweatshirt. Nerd fashion! And though normally I don’t like Z. Randall Stroope, his Lamentations of Jeremiah is a thing of true beauty. The alto line KICKS ARSE.

Remember by Christina Georgina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

(My choir did this last year. The whole week of the shiva it echoed in my head.)
