This morning's tea I took to the exquisite counterpoint of a Scarlatti sonata indoors, against some low-powered thunder outdoors.
Driving music this morning was the Kyrie and Gloria from Haydn's Theresienmesse.
On the Red Line train, I got some more work done on my own Credo.

Incidentally, one of the choir members remarked that for yesterday's rehearsal, they sang Love is the spirit (the motet I wrote for Paul and this choir); and he complimented me anew on what a good piece he finds it.
Separately, I hear that an order for 34 copies of the Song of Mary was shipped to a distributor. So: thank you, whoever you are who ordered the piece, and God bless you and your choir.

henningmusick: Shuffle into the Labor Day Weekend
The live performance of Zappa's "Drowning Witch" (with that rap-before-rap-quite-was vibe) giving way to the Lyke-Wake Dirge in the Stravinsky Cantata.
And then: the Frescobaldi Recercar, melting into King Crimson's "B'Boom," in turn yielding to the Rameau Sarabandes: fabulous.
In Quantum of Solace (a title I still cannot pretend to understand) — a movie which I perhaps like a bit better than the average critic — M upbraids 007 for the death of Fields. "She worked in an office, collecting reports." That so, why did M send her on the assignment? Why is this an indictment of Bond, rather than of M (or her delegates)?
