First observe of how many Notes compass the Tune is. Next, the place of your first Note; and how many Notes above & below that: so as you may begin the Tune of your first Note as the rest may be sung in the compass of your and the peoples voices, without Squeaking above, or Grumbling below.

TODAY, JULY 10: July singing and ice cream social

igloo ice cream

if I lived in an igloo*, would that be cool enough for you, Jon?

I may have omitted mention of the actual singing. 2 to 5 pm at St Paul’s Episcopal Church, Clinton & Carroll Streets, Brooklyn. Beware, the southbound F train isn’t stopping at Carroll St., so go past and loop back, or take the 2, 3, or 4 to Borough Hall, or the A or C to Jay St. and walk (or catch the 57 bus along Court St, or the 61 to Columbia St and walk across the highway).

This weekend, in fact, July 10, 2016. I thought we’d have three suggested “sundaes” (of course, mix and match as you like):

AFFOGATO: Over ladyfingers, coffee or vanilla ice cream; coffee; crushed chocolate espresso beans; whipped cream; coffee liqueur

S’MORES: Over graham crackers, vanilla or chocolate ice cream; Marshmallow Fluff; chopped milk chocolate; chocolate sauce. Possibly actual marshmallows, but no open flames, sorry.

TROPICALIA: Over bananas, citrus or berry sorbet; chopped dried pineapple, dried coconut, mango; spiced rum.

Details are subject to change, as the shopping’s not done yet. Please feel free to invite non-singing friends with a fondness for frozen treats to meet us at my place after 5.
