Dear Foothills Community,

The Annual Open Business meeting is on January 24, 2021. We will hear presentations and vote on resolutions from 3 committees.

If Ye Love Me by Thomas Tallis, sung by The King’s Singers 
Start the new year with this ethereal setting of text from the Gospel of John, written in 1565. Read the words in the score as you listen. Can you follow the different parts in the score? Can you figure out which part each person is singing? Then try listening with your eyes closed – how does the music make you feel? What do you see in your mind’s eye as you listen?
