Volleyball and School

Posted by thesinger on March 2, 2007

Yes, I have a weakness for the dear sport. It is truly a wonderful way to “a-muse” myself and get away from that stress-filled occupation called high school.

While we’re on the subject of high school, I will mention that I talked to Mr. S about one particular song that we really struggled with and never fully mastered. I suggested to him that we totally and utterly not sing it, and he agreed, just that quick. I also suggested to him that we sing a song that I got from a website called vpmag.com/nwc/. (It’s a place that people can upload songs that are in the NoteWorthy Composer file format.) The name of the song is Dona Nobis Pacem. It’s a round song that was written by William Byrd in the renaissance period. A very nice song in my humble opinion. 🙂

Does this story have a moral? I don’t think I will assign any. If you want to deduce any morals from this ramble, feel very free to do so.


Ps. I was on some very good teams tonight and we won very often. That is a very good thing!!!

    Dona Nobis Pacem ISN’T by William Byrd. It’s an anonymous round. I made a mistake a year ago by submitting it into vpmag.com/nwc/ as William Byrd. I’m sorry, but that’s the truth.
