O for a good deep sleep
It has been a long day today. We have been practicing for The Messiah twice a week since January and this will be the final week of practice and rehearsals for our performance this Friday and Saturday.
We had our first full rehearsal with the orchestra and soloists today and it was tiring. The funny thing was my voice was still perfectly normal after the 3-hour long practice but what was aching was my entire left arm and shoulder. That was the result of holding on to the heavy set of music scores.
When I got home I thought it'd be good to open my bottle of full-bodied late bottled vintage port, have a glass and settle down to a good rest for the night. It was really good wine.
