Manning Chapel, a space with soaring ceilings and five-star acoustics on the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor campus in Belton, was the fitting venue for the university’s Concert Choir on Tuesday. The 34-member singing group and a 14-piece orchestra was conducted by Michelle Roueche in a performance of Magnificat in D major by J.S. Bach.

This piece, composed to wow the public at his new-job debut, is Bach’s setting of the Latin text, Luke I: 46-55, that tells the story of the Virgin Mary. For a composition made up of 12 separate sections, five for chorus, the remainder either solo, duet or a trio of singers, it is remarkably vigorous — Roueche brought in her performance about 25 minutes.

        This is a well-written article, but the journalist should have checked with other sources before they used terms such as "five-star acoustics." Manning Chapel used to have excellent acoustics, but after carpeting was installed, the sound became much less crisp, and even poorly muffled at times. If a writer is going to use overly glamorous terms like that, they should be able to verify it, as opposed to using their own opinion.
