It was so great to have a scaled down version of The Vespers. We appreciated all the work that went into the production, and loved seeing the faces of the singers, from wherever they might be. The poems and readings were chosen with great care, and we especially enjoyed listening to a professor with 50 years of experience, and in a way participate in his farewell. We haven't missed this in over a decade, so listening to the recordings was also fun, as we had connections with undergrads from those years and we were at Sage when they sang those selections years back. We loved the pictures that were shown. We were so thankful to have been part of this event, it was a very special Christmas surprise for my husband and myself!
