As an alumni for the Forestry School and member of the Glee Club (MFS'81), one of my fondest memories of Yale was performing the Brahms Requiem with Mr. Heath and the spirited and rigorous rehearsals. What was a hallmark for me and this group was the mutual shoulder massages we gave each other at the beginning of each rehearsal. I still have a cassette tape recording of a rehearsal for the Requiem, with Mr. Heath's comments.
I appreciate the demands and expectations of an excellent choir master known as Fenno Heath!
Sincerely, Thea Weiss Hayes (formerly Thea Weiss (graduated F&ES '81) and Thea Weiss Tarbet)
