ECCC From Lionel:Arguably the best concert of my career since 1974 last night in Chemnitz. Endless standing ovation for a brilliant choir and not too bad a conductor. I could have happily died after last night's performance and the choir made enough money in one concert to give me a decent burial and even ask Lindt to make a huge chocolate statue of the choir's pee pot. Love, Lionel
