Where have all the men gone?! My guess is that they didn’t come South.

Man, do ever feel your pain. We have the same problem although putting people on monthly rotating teams has helped.
I found it interesting that you have “bass” as a category. Much of the gospel stuff we do (and even the choruses) are only really written for S/A/T and if there is a bass line it’s just the soprano line down the octave.

sam- yes, you’re absolutely right about the lack of bass in any modern music. We have a strong leader on our team who is also an extremely gifted bass, so we embrace the bass. He usually makes up his own bass parts by just listening to the bass guitar. If Darwin is unavailable, I don’t scramble to get a substitute bass.
as it turns out, Darwin will be able to sing this weekend, so we have at least one other guy.
Despite the lack of men this weekend, I have been really encouraged lately that we actually have 6 tenors in the rotation. In the past we’ve had to use women to cover tenor parts.
