The Thanksgiving Mass here is huge. Last year, for this particular Mass, I harmonised and orchestrated (for choir and orchestra) the Chorale melody 'Schwing Dich', 'Praise My Soul', had the choral verse for tenors (in this case, sopranos) and strings, continuo performed, and other excellent items. The standard of performance is excellent and the congregation is comprised of parents and students so the auditorium is packed.
