Scary. Last Thursday I drank the equivalent of 4 cups of coffee around 3pm, and then didn’t eat dinner. At rehearsal that night I started feeling strange during Super Flumina Babylonis. All the held notes. My heart felt…strange. Weak. So I dropped out and focused on breathing regularly. Something similar had happened before. By breathing would feel weird and by heart would follow suit. Each time while singing. So I went to the back room in the Citadel, ate a bag of Goldfish and rested.
