Being incredibly tired and worn made it hard to get up early this morning. However, it would later turn out that it was definitely worth it. The high mass with Most Reverend Archbishop Anders Wejryd was a brilliant way to finish of a truly amazing weekend. The world premiere of Do What is Fair lived up to all expectations, even though they were very high (did you get the pun?) in many cases.

It all started with a last rehearsal of Do What is Fair and other parts of the high mass. To follow-up the happy birthday-ing we had three birthday choristers today (sadly I can’t recall their names) for whom we, of course, sang Happy Birthday. You could tell that I wasn’t the only one who felt worn and tired, but the rehearsal still went well.

Then we had a break before the high mass. Everyone was changing and standing in line for all the restrooms nearby. Still, we all managed to get ready in time. Swedish Radio had moved around mics during the rehearsal and had a pretty good setup I think. I look forward to hearing the radio broadcast on the web later. At the end of the high mass we formed a circle outside the church at the end of the recession and sang ”Alta trinita beata” together.

Thank you all for a great finale!
