A Happy and Blessed New Year to you too and to all present and future forum members. Re: joining the "Souds Off" forum, I was asking myself that very question this morning - how do I join? I wonder does entering last year's composers' competition make me eligible? Maybe it excludes me. Thanks for th...

Can be sung to the tune St Deniol . . .

Immoral, impossible, God only knows Why tenors and basses, sopranos, altos At mass on a Sunday are rarely the same As those who on Friday to choir practice came. Unready, unable to sight-read the notes, Nor counting, nor blending, they tighten their throats: The descant so piercing is soaring above:...

Happy Birthday dear Jesus,
Happy Birthday to yooo!"
