年の暮れに演奏される「第九」の魅力

年末になると、毎年決まってベートーベンの「交響曲第9番」が演奏されます。
場所によっては、この第九の演奏を聴くだけでなく、市民が合唱に参加できるイベントが開催され、大いに賑わいを見せるところもあります。
実際、年々参加者も増える傾向にあり、第九の演奏日までに熱心に合唱の練習が繰り替えされています。
また、参加者の声からは、一度この第九の合唱に参加すると、止められなくなるという声をよく聞きます。
第九には、人を引き付ける不思議な力があるのでしょうか。
もともと、第九が年末に演奏されるようになったのは、日本独特の文化です。
この文化が形成された背景には、日本のあるオーケストラ(管弦楽団)が、きっかけでした。
このオーケストラは、演奏会を開いてもなかなか、観客数が満員になる事がなく、経営が赤字状態になっていた時代がありました。
この頃、ちょうど年末の演奏会で、たまたまベートーベンの第九番の交響曲「合唱付き」の全曲演奏を始めて試みたところ、非常に聴衆にうけ、それ以降、第九は日本の人々に広く知られるようになった、と言われています。
一度第九を聞くと、誰もが圧倒的な力量感と、荘厳な旋律による合唱に魅了される事でしょう。
第九演奏会における合唱に参加する人々も、聴くだけでは満足できず、自ら唄ってみるというスタンスに変化していったケースが圧倒的に多い特徴があります。
そういった点で、第九は時代と共に人々に愛され、人々が育んできた面も大きく、またこのような背景こそが、人の心を掴んで放さない、第九の魅力に発展していったとも言えます。

NFL Competition Committee Plans to Alter Catch-Rule Language, Replay Process

NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent said Tuesday that the league is closing in on clarifying its controversial catch rule.
Men's Anaheim Ducks #9 Paul Kariya Reebok Orange Third Premier NHL Jersey
According to Mark Maske of theWashington Post, Vincent said the NFL plans to eliminate two factors that can cause incompletions.

Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we’ll reverse that, he said. Going to the ground, it looks like that’s going to be eliminated. And we’ll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it’s indisputable.

Authentic Kids Paul Goldschmidt Jersey Last season, Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James appeared to catch the go-ahead touchdown on 1st-and-goal with 28 seconds remaining in a Week 15 game against the New England Patriots.

James reached the ball over the goal line, but it moved when it hit the ground, which caused the replay official to overturn it.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger then threw an interception two plays later, and the Pats won to essentially clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Elite Womens Delano Hill Jersey The James play caused fans to renew their demands for a more clearly defined catch rule, and it looks like they’ll get that if the team owners approve the proposal. The annual meeting starts Sunday.

So, basically, the Jets have paid $500,000 now in exchange for the ability to evaluate Bridgewater throughout the offseason program, training camp, and the preseason before deciding whether to keep him on the active roster when the regular season begins, and the $5 million becomes at that point as a practical matter fully guaranteed.

The Authentic Minnesota Vikings Jersey chance that Bridgewater won’t see his $5 million base salary increases if the Jets pick a quarterback with the third overall choice in round one. If that’s what the Jets do, Bridgewater could take full advantage of his chance to show via the preseason that he can still ; if he gets cut after showing that he can still perform, someone else will surely be interested in giving him another chance.

Alternatively, Bridgewater could clamor to be cut or traded if/when the Jets pick a quarterback with pick No. 3. That would be a delicate P.R. strategy, but few would fault Bridgewater for wanting out in light of the arrival of a rookie arrival that could result in Bridgewater being dumped onto the market days before the regular season begins.

Ndamukong Suh is signing with the Los Angeles Rams on a one-year, $14 million deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

Suh made his decision after visiting with the Saints and Titans last week before visiting L.A. on Tuesday. He initially planned to visit the Raiders on Wednesday before deciding to skip the scheduled meetup. Despite not hosting Suh on a visit, the Jets emerged as a serious contender for his services late in the week, but rescinded their offer on Sunday.

John Tavares Jersey The former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle, who was released by the team at the start of free agency last week, tallied 15.5 sacks and 181 combined tackles in his time in Miami, despite eating up double teams constantly. Since 2010, he ranks second among NFL DTs in sacks (51.5), first in QB hits (147), second in total pressures (381.5) and first in tackles for loss (103).

But could this be the year they waver on their commitment, and draft a first-round quarterback to replace Flacco

I intend to ask Quinn why the Dylan Bundy Womens Jersey team didn’t make a play for Blount the past two years when we talk to the GM at the league meetings next week. It’s not fair to pin it on Jim Caldwell, without more information. The former coach hadn’t shied聽away from strong personalities or checkered backgrounds, in the past.

I don’t know if he’d be the right fit for whatever the Lions’ new blocking scheme will look like, but I’m partial to mauling guards. Will Hernandez is a monster who plays with a mean streak. That gets my vote.

A month later, Borges has yet to write for the paper since. So what happened to that further review Has his suspension turned into a termination, or will he be back at the Herald PFT put that question to Herald sports editor Sean Leahy, who answered, There’s no update beyond what the company said last month.

Report: Andrew Norwell to choose among 49ers, Colts, Giants

The Giants remain confident they will land Boston Bruins Jersey All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell, but they will have to beat out the 49ers and Colts, Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com reports.

Those are Norwell’s three finalists, via Stapleton.

Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman, who signed Norwell as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State four years ago, was the expected front-runner for Norwell. But it might take making Norwell the highest-paid guard in football to land him.

All the work we need to be doing is off the field and in the communities, Patriots safety Devin McCourty, who has emerged as one of the Coalition鈥檚 visible leaders, told USA TODAY Sports.

That was a vehicle that we used to draw attention, McCourty said of the player demonstrations. But doing some type of protest on the field every week is not going to stop an unarmed black kid from getting killed, or fix a criminal justice system in another state.

Keenum was in Houston on Monday night, participating in the First Shot for charity before the Rockets-Spurs game. He briefly spoke to reporters about becoming a free agent yet again.

It feels really good, Keenum said, via Mark Berman of Houston’s FOX 26. It’s a tough league. When you get opportunities like this, you’ve got to take advantage of them, so we’re going to take advantage of it.

Keenum ed for the Rams in St. Louis in 2015, the Rams in Los Angeles in 2016 and the Vikings last season. The former University of Houston star also has spent time with the Texans.

The future of Odell Beckham Jr. with the New York Giants is getting more and more uncertain. The talented wideout is reportedly willing to hold out if he doesn鈥檛 get a contract extension this offseason, while Giants owner John Mara has not ruled out trading the superstar wideout.

Baker Mayfield after Pro Day: I’ve put myself in good spot to be considered draft’s best QB

Baker Mayfield didn’t hurt himself at Oklahoma’s Pro Day on Wednesday, though throwing against air, most quarterback prospects pass that test with flying colors.

Friday Five: The biggest NFL Draft quarterback busts of the BCS era More The NFL Draft is in a month, and as has been the case in recent years, quarterbacks are the hot commodities. In my most recent mock draft here at CBS Sports, I have three teams selecting QBs in the top five, and it’s entirely possible we could see four taken in the first five picks when the dust settles. Now more than ever, quarterback has become the “must have” in the NFL. Nevermind the fact that we just saw the Eagles lose their franchise QB to a torn ACL only to go on to win a Super Bowl with a third-round pick out of Arizona named Nick Foles; the prevailing theory is that to compete for Super Bowls, you must have a franchise QB.

Report: Broncos will listen to trade offers for C.J. Anderson

Running back C.J. Anderson锟斤拷s time in Denver may be up. But only if someone else will trade for him.
Gale Sayers Women's Elite White Jersey: Nike NFL Chicago Bears Vapor Untouchable Road #40
Authentic Mens Davis Webb Jersey Mike Klis of 9News.com in Denver reports that the Broncos don’t intend to release Anderson, but that they will listen to trade offers for him.

The Broncos possibly expect an offer from the Dolphins. Two years ago, Miami signed Anderson to a four-year, $18 million offer sheet. The Broncos matched it.

But what there is no maybe about is that he has been the backup behind a very average quarterback for several years.

Sam Bradford (30)锟斤拷Intends to sign with Cardinals (one year, $20 million) The most talented QB in free agency, but unfortunately the durability concerns have become overwhelming.

Jay Cutler (34), Dolphins If he wasn锟斤拷t great in an Adam Gase scheme that he锟斤拷d thrived in before, what makes you think he锟斤拷d thrive somewhere else?

Martin was at one point one of the more productive backs in the league, but injuries and a suspension made it easier for the Bucs to part ways.

Limited Kasey Redfern Jersey He’s 29 years old and two Colt McCoy Jersey years removed from being at his best, but the Raiders are smart to look at options if they want to keep Lynch around (at some price, even if it’s not the $6 million he’s due now).

It’s also interesting in that it gives the clear impression the Raiders are looking at other backs, and having leverage is always a handy thing.

According to NBC in Philadelphia, the Eagles weren’t aware of the pending legal matter when they traded for Bennett.

The incident in Houston was one of two times that Bennett had a brush with the law in 2017.

The 32-year-old was also involved in an incident in Las Vegas in August.

David Tepper and Ben Navarro have been identified as other possible bidders for the team. The league could vote on approving a new owner at May’s league meetings if things progress as hoped in the coming weeks.

After starting free agency with about $21 million in cap space , the Giants signed running back Jonathan Stewart, left tackle Nate Solder, left guard Patrick Omameh, outside linebacker Kareem Martin and cornerbacks Teddy Williams and Curtis Riley during the first week of free agency.

All of those contracts, including Solder’s as the highest-paid offensive lineman in the NFL , have been figured into the NFLPA report.

Confident Josh Rosen: Here’s the type of QB Giants would be getting

INDIANAPOLIS The Giants are already committed to Eli Manning as their starting quarterback heading into the 2018 season. So, what happens if they select Josh Rosen out of UCLA with the No. 2 pick in the draft?
Roberto Luongo Men's Nike Black 2014 Premier Olympic Hockey Jersey - Third Team Canada #1 Jerseys
After all, almost everyone with an opinion on these players agrees Rosen is the quarterback most ready to play right away.

I think I’m the best quarterback here, he said. I think I can diagnose defenses and put the ball where it needs to be and make quick decisions. I think we’re all competitors, and I think every other quarterback should have the same exact beliefs that I do.

Coming to the Giants would mean sitting behind Manning but also, in the future, throwing to Odell Beckham Jr. presuming the Giants sign him to a long-term extension.

It’s always a benefit Rees Odhiambo Youth jersey to have weapons, Rosen said. I mean, Odell’s an unbelievable player, Sterling Shepard also is an incredible player. I think wherever you are, it’s always valuable to have some guys you can throw the ball to and put it in a bunch of different places and they’ll grab it whenever it may be.

The Jets are dealing with plenty of legal issues at the moment. Linebacker Dylan Donahue was the latest to get arrested when he caused an accident by driving the wrong way in the Lincoln Tunnel early Monday morning while allegedly intoxicated. He joins wide receiver Robby Anderson and cornerback Rashard Robinson in the Jets’ police blotter.

Both Bowles and Maccagnan hid behind the excuse of the issues being pending legal matters as to why the team has not taken any action against the players. The truth is if they wanted to cut them immediately, that is their right.

We obviously take those things very seriously, Maccagnan said specifically about Donahue and Anderson. In particular with Dylan, it literally just happened the other day and we’re still in the process of gathering information on that. We don’t take it lightly. Both of those are pending legal issues right now that we’re going to see how it plays out. We are monitoring those things. I’ve had frank conversations with both those players. We’ll see how things go going forward. We’ll address it in due course.

Report: Buccaneers sign DE Vinny Curry

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reportedly added some edge pass-rush talent to go with All-Pro Gerald McCoy along the defensive line.

According to ESPN’s Jenna Laine, Tampa Bay has signed former Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry to a three-year, $27 million contract.

Lotulelei is now the Bills’ highest-paid player. Does anyone believe he’ll provide the most impact for Buffalo in 2018 and beyond It’s going to be difficult for the Bills to get a strong return on their massive investment.

Meanwhile, Alex Okafor decided to return and signed a two-year, $10 million contract, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Okafor played well opposite Cameron Jordan and tied for second on the team with 4.5 sacks despite missing the final six contests after suffering a season-ending ACL tear. A healthy Okafor makes the Saints’ pass-rush far more potent.

Patrick Robinson’s decision to return to New Orleans after being a Saints’ first-round pick in 2010 came as a surprise. Robinson’s career didn’t take off until he left the organization and finally blossomed into a well-rounded cornerback with the Philadelphia Eagles defense as part of last year’s Super Bowl run. The Saints are already set at outside cornerback with Marshon Lattimore and Ken Crawley. Robinson is expected to serve as the secondary’s nickel corner.

A possible Ndamukong Suh signing may be forthcoming as well.

The Patriots have some top players set for free agency in 2019, a group headlined by receivers Brandin Cooks, defensive end Trey Flowers and starting right guard Shaq Mason.

The former Eagles tight end intends to sign a four-year contract with the Bears this week, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported.

According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the deal is worth $32 million.

Article 10, Section 2(a)(i) of the CBA sets forth the methodology, known as the Cap Percentage Average, for calculating the required tender for a non-exclusive franchise player: The Nonexclusive Franchise Tender shall be a one year NFL Player Contract for (A) the average of the five largest Prior Year Salaries for players at the position … at which the Franchise Player participated in the most plays during the prior League Year, which average shall be calculated by: (1) summing the amounts of the Franchise Tags for players at that position for the five preceding League Years; (2) dividing the resulting amount by the sum of the Salary Caps for the five preceding League Years; and (3) multiplying the resulting percentage by the Salary Cap for the upcoming League Year … (the Cap Percentage Average) …; or (B) 120 percent of his Prior Year Salary, whichever is greater.

Limited Mens Sean Lee Jersey The coveted Redskins quarterback is expected to sign with the Vikings this week, ESPN reported.

No final decisions have been made, Cousins’ agent Mike McCartney told ESPN Tuesday. The plan is to visit Minnesota first. That’s all wesay right now.

According to NFL Media, which cited unidentified sources, Cousins is expected to have dinner with Vikings coaches and other essential personnel Wednesday before visiting the team’s new facility Thursday.

Cousins, who is searching for a new NFL home after Washington signed Alex Smith last month, wrote a farewell letter to the Redskins faithful on Monday. He mistakenly tagged the Vikings and Jets in the note on his personal website Emmitt Smith Womens Jersey before quickly removing them, further igniting the rumors of his top destination choices.
