Fairy G, Placido IS MINE, I bet I saw him first! I so like the fact that he has made the transition from Tenor to Baritone in his old age; I've made the transition from Alto to Tenor, now I'm nearly 30. Problem is, in our tiny local choir I was quite happy singing along an octave below the fruit flies (sorry, Sopranos), and then along came 2 serious singers who can sight read OFF THE PAGE and now I'm expected to sing Tenor along with them; I now have about 15 pieces that I have to painfully pick out on the piano at home and learn.
In the garden, I tend to only sing when I have the lawn mower, the drill or the jig saw going so no one can really hear me and then it's the Alto bits from Handel's Messiah.
