“The sun’s disc did not remain immobile. This was not the sparkling of a heavenly body, for it spun round on itself in a mad whirl, when suddenly a clamor was heard from all the people. The sun, whirling, seemed to loosen itself from the firmament and advance threateningly upon the earth as if to crush us with its huge fiery weight. The sensation during those moments was terrible.”
— Dr. Almeida Garrett, professor of natural sciences at the University of Coimbra (1917)

published 12 December 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

RECEIVED A WONDERFUL email from the Bauer family, which uses the Watershed polyphonic rehearsal videos to memorize choral masterpieces. This video shows Victoria’s “O Magnum Mysterium,” an ancient 2-voice version of the “Veni Veni Emmanuel,” and a famous “Ave Maria” attributed to Victoria:


Our rehearsal videos are offered freely to all. However, we hope those who value this project will consider donating $5.00 per month. Thank you!
