It looks like the rest of this chapter will have to wait until the weekend, or at least another day or two. This promises to be quite a week, in between staying up nights to finish work before the holidays and going to a bunch of rehearsals. Today I had an interesting non-rehearsal at the theater, where I'll be for Ne'ila on Yom Kippur. The instrumentalists came early, and had to leave by the time the sound guy showed up, late. So I chatted for a nice hour and a half. Tomorrow there's yet another rehearsal for Shaharit, which I now know inside out--but not yet with this group of musicians, with whom I'll be at the synagogue on the second day of Rosh Hashonah. On Sunday I have another rehearsal, for Shaharit on Yom Kippur (which differs slightly from the same service on Rosh Hashonah), with the musicans who'll be at the church.
It's a bit confusing. But I love every minute of it.
