Fenno's Birthday Today 12/30/08


Hippo Birdie Two Ewe....


From Derek Ludwin- received on Fenno's Birthday today: 12/30/08

Dear Carol,

I was so sorry to hear the news about Fenno.

We were fortunate enough to join the Glee Club just in time to enjoy a year of song with Fenno. It was a whirlwind year, capped by the "Hail and Farewell" concert, and we all quickly came to understand how much Fenno meant to the YGC and the broader community. In the years that followed, I continued to have the pleasure of Fenno's company -- he introduced me to Welsh rarebit at Mory's -- and of singing his new compositions, including his wonderful Sanctus. Fenno has left a legacy of music that few can match: he inspired us to sing, and to love both the making of music and the music itself, and we will continue to remember him every time we sing.

Please know that you and entire Heath family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Very sincerely yours,

Derek Ludwin
