Well all, I'm saddened I was unable to sing with you all tonight, but do understand that our choir master needs his health and concure he should stay home and heal.  

I would like to open my home for the next one, so I may finally attend a Darkwood choir practice!  

Please let me know if this will be amenable to those who will be attending.

Yours in Service,

  Folks, I am very sorry, but I'm cancelling Darkwood Choir practice for 
  tonight.  To put it frankly, my health sucks at the moment -- what with 
  asthma problems, laryngitis, and sleep deprivation -- and one of my 
  guardian angels has just convinced me not to be a fool and make things 
  worse by trying to talk and sing in this condition, and by generally 
  wearing myself out more.  So, I'll run away, and maybe live to sing 
  another day.

  I apologize to you all, and especially to Anne, who was going to let us 
  use her home for practice tonight.

  Na'arah, my redoubtable Choir Minion, is even now making phone calls to 
  notify people of this last-minute cancellation.  Between the phone and 
  the mailing list, I hope we get everybody.

  On the bright side, I have accomplished a great deal of work on the 
  processional music, and will upload it to the choir website as soon as I 
  am fairly happy with it.  I have found that the hardest part of 
  composing this is not simply writing it (which is actually pretty easy), 
  but trying to make sure it will be enjoyable to modern ears while still 
  staying true to the archaic genre.  We are used to music that is much 
  more sophisticated.

  I have also been scoring "Darkwood, the Oak of the West" for choir. 
  Currently I'm working on a 4-part version (1 soprano/teno, 2 
  alto/baritone, 1 bass), but I will probably come out with a 3-part 
  version, too, and we can decide which one works best for us.

  See you all soon, I hope.
