Musically, I find the old Wooster songs do not embarrass me. The texts, though: foo-ee.

Plugging in tolerable texts is actually proving an easier task than I might have feared; first is practically a wrap. More tomorrow.

And, separately: There will be employment for Love is the spirit, after all.

Sing, sing a song . . . .

A dear friend who’s moved to Nashville seems to be gearing up to program a couple of voice recitals, and has asked for some Henningmusick. Now, back in the Deeps of Time, my Independent Study at Wooster was a short cycle of seven songs . . . there are ways in which it is obviously a student work.

There are so many music MSS. which, if I were to look for them, it would be quite the hunt. Curiously, I found this one the first place I looked. Phooey, but it needs some work. Now I know why Varèse and others completely destroyed early works.
