    If I may lighten the mood...

    A new soprano joined our choir recently.
    I wanted our organist to know a little about her, so I mentioned that she is an actuary.
    His response: Great! A soprano who can count!

  • It sounds as though you have one of those one in a thousand. Bravo.
    A soprano who can actuary count is a God-send! (Harrerurah!!!)

    well... only if she can count with a consistent rhythm!
  • One of our members has a really wicked sense of irony. My ribbing is wetter where he has a subtle touch, so he is by far the better man on this count. To top this off, he is fairly brilliant anyway, and a fine gentleman. Unlike myself, he pauses to think and consider before replying.

    When looking at a Graduale with both sets of manuscript neumes engraved:

    A: Somebody scribbled in your book! Look at all those red marks.
    B: (Looked carefully at A, then stifled a smile) Yes! I was so angry.

    Or when he translated, off-the-cuff, 70 percent of a hymn we didn't have a translation for. (And the Lord ascended into heaven somethingsomethingsomething that his sacrifice somethingsomething for all men ...)

    A: I had no idea that so many Latin words meant, "something."
    B: Yes, it's very mysterious.

    Wish I could remember others.

    Me, describing the 6pm Sunday Mass at my home parish: "It wasn't specifically a teen Mass, but they always had Youth Group afterwards, so a lot of the high schoolers came, and also Middle School, Young Adults, and plenty of regular aged people."
    One of my over-75yo Sopranos: Regular aged. So none of us would qualify."
