Convocation 2006

Today was the 2006 Newman Theological College Convocation. Several good friends of mine received their degrees today, so congratulations to you all!

I participated in the choir this year and the rest of the group was kind enough to stick around for a few extra minutes after practice to do a quick recording. Click below for an MP3 of the recording:

“Ave Maria” by Jacques Arcadelt

The piece is quite beautiful. The recording turned out quite nicely, too (although there was a bit of background noise / talking due to the preparations that were being made for the ceremony). I built another condenser mic on Thanksgiving Monday and, with the help of a piece of scrap metal and some aluminum tubing, I rigged up a stereo mic bracket; this is what I used today.

Enjoy! And let me know what you think!
