YouTube Views

Okay, so they won't get as many views as "Gangnam Style," but the choir's YouTube videos you see to the right are being watched!  The Byrd Kyrie has 123 views as I write this, the Byrd Ave Verum Corpus 53, and Saint-Saens' Tollite Hostias -- which we're singing next week for Christmas -- has 26.  If you haven't watched/listened, please do so and give them a like!  Feel free to link to them on your Facebook and/or Twitter pages also.

I still need to upload the only proper we recorded back in 2010, Intret orationem.
