Dewy morning

Back in the right spot, as even when the page is not beneath my poised pen, new ideas spring up in a most gratifying manner.

Chappie who used to sing with us at St Paul's just noted that a Psalm setting (which I arranged . . . sort of a modest homage to Mozart, who transcribed the Allegri Miserere mei, Domine on one hearing, this is a Psalm 91 I heard repeatedly, sung by men, and which I later arranged for SATB from aural memory) is a piece which keeps recurring to his inner ear.
