Please give my love to your mom and family. I am glad that you are all able to be there together.
Thank you for letting all of us know about Fenno. After looking at the blog I went and pulled out my Brahms Requiem score. When we rehearsed that in 1980 there was a part that Fenno particularly enjoyed. He enthused about wouldn't it be great to die while conducting this piece at this particular measure. I made a note in my score - Fenno's measure (movement VI, measure 177)- and everytime I have sung this piece since then I have thought of him. He certainly shared his joy of music and we all benefited from his teaching.
