It's nourishment for the soul and heartening to see and hear the
outpouring of music and memories for Fenno on this wonderful web
page. Thanks Peggy for making this possible. It feels so simple,
really, to say why I honor Fenno. I'm one of the kids from the
country who came to Yale with an OK singing voice and found his life
transformed because of this witty, clear, disciplined, inspiring,
grounded, graceful, passionate, and fun man! Each of those adjectives
rings as true as the pitches he gave us, the magistral hand, the
commanding eye. The respect and love I feel for Fenno rises from
those undergraduate years and is memorialized in the 1965 'Round the
World Tour Book. My appreciation for him deepened over the years. Each
encounter is a gift. I was so happy to stand with the Washington
Men's Camerata and the MastersingersUSA at the IMC this past March in
a glorious 'Fennofest' led by Bruce McInnes, culminating in that
massive refrain, Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
