Hey guess what, the choir at Westminster Abbey performed Ubi Caritas at the royal wedding earlier today! Why the thrillment? Because VCS will sing it too, in our upcoming concert, “A Celebration Of The Life.”
However, ahem, I’m guessing that what the royal choir had in ruffles and livery, we’ll make up for in way cool mash-up-ness. Because our Ubi Caritas is going to have Yoruba and Kemitic chanting interspersed. Having rehearsed it several times, I can tell you that it will be an ethereal and uplifting experience, and I am looking forward to singing it.
(Yes, the royal choir may well have sung a mash-up too. But I have no idea since I didn’t wake up at 0:darkthirty to watch the proceedings. No, that’s what the Internet is for. And thank goodness. Now I know all about the hats.)
No, that isn’t a typo in the caption. I’m really speechless. How would you caption that picture? Tell us, in the comments section!
