It's makes perfect sense that Fenno and all the Heaths would bring our extended YGC family together once again, even in these terribly sad circumstances. I've enjoyed reading posts from my early- and mid-'80s contemporaries and realizing that many, many others are sharing in these same feelings of sadness at this news, and joy from re-living wonderful times. What memories! Singing that medieval TTBB "Gloria" (I forget whose it was) at Roman-Motier in Switzerland during the 1983 European Tour and feeling like a medieval monk; watching Fenno in concert and admiring how he used his entire body to conduct and get the sound he wanted; singing at Woolsey and feeling a part of an awesome tradition that spans generations. (Of course, I also remember the frustration in Fenno's voice as he bluntly told us: "Don't go flat!" Um, OK -- thanks for helping!)
I became a better singer and a better person for being able to sing under Fenno, at Yale, and as part of this great organization with all of you. Fenno, thank you for a wealth of memories that will live on.
