    I was happy to connect with him on Facebook. He’s out of the closet, gave up an I-banking job to be a high-end florist. He still goes to church every week so that he can offer support to other gay Mormons.

    This meant a lot to him.
    I think I know that dude. He didn't happen to go to law school, did he?

    Yeah, he did. Does his last name rhyme with rake?

    I was blown away by the rendition of Come Come Ye Saints during the Saturday session. Capelius, what is the version? Who arranged it?

    It is a Mack Wilberg arrangement. It is a lot of fun, especially with the orchestra, but we could never fit them with the GA seats installed. Mack arranged all but 3 of the conference pieces. Ryan had two with If I Listen with My Heart and In Hymns of Praise. I cannot remember who arranged I Will Follow God's Plan, but is was someone we regularly use.

    Thanks. It was a lot of fun and I was able to get enough cough drops to keep from disturbing any songs.

    Singing it after the introduction from Pres. Nelson made it that much more powerful to me. I had to really focus to keep it from overwhelming me.

    It may have been. This is the toughest setup we do with the orchestra. Because they are so close, some of their sound, and especially the brass, bleeds into the choir microphones, so the sound booth has a nightmare trying to balance it all out. That is why when you see them in the normal conference center set up they are so far below us and we rely on monitors and eyes to stay together. Both venues that we perform in have interesting challenges in producing a good sound, especially for broadcasts.

    I actually thought they did fine. And it was nice of the guy at the top to make sure we didn't have to close with a MW arrangement.

    I didn't hear it but my guess is he cut out some or most of the middle section where it gets slow and quiet and then builds back to the chorus. Also I bet he did not ,modulate keys in the Wilbergian manner. Am I close?

    From what I can tell it is pretty subtle. inserting 16th rests where other editions have eighth notes and so forth. No significant changes, but from Mack's perspective a truer version than what has resulted over the centuries. He did it for the entire Messiah that was recorded in 2015.

    Those sound like notation edits which are really not that big of a deal.

    I was wondering why it seemed to be moving faster than what I'm used to, and it was something other than just tempo. Makes sense now.

    I am no expert but I am pretty familiar with the Messiah and WIlberg edited the piece it was solely notational or he might have cut off some of the notes a fourth of a beat early by using a sixteenth rest for half an eighth, as Copelius suggested. I was actually hoping for a more significant change. For example, there is a version of Vivaldi's four seasons out there that takes out a half beat from several measures and the change totally reinvigorates the piece, making it different and interesting where before it was repetitive and dull. Wilberg did nothing like that, however.

    Nonetheless this performance was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Sometimes using a large choir on the Messiah bogs the music down and makes the lyrics incomprehensible. But this performance was crisp (perhaps because he added rests and shortened notes so as to add space for the ear to hear) and clear and musical. Really well done.
