After a break for refreshments, we tackled a completely different piece, a five-part arrangement of "Dido’s Lament" from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Again, we began with a recording sung beautifully by Karina Gauvin, and Marea gave us some context about the music. After the initial play-through, Marea coached us through the piece trying to bring out some of the same emotion, and once again the final result was very gratifying.
