Small steps

Word is in from Kirstin: The Op.121 will go on in April 2015, at the Rivers Conservatory Contemporary Seminar.

No progress with the flute choir adaptation of the Agnus Dei; it will happen someday.

Scintillating whispers of making some music out in Colorado . . . I have some ideas.

Wednesday, I had a nice chat with Paul, and at their first rehearsal the chorus found the Op.123 a bit of a challenge (which does not surprise me), though Paul feels that nothing is insurmountable (which does not surprise me, either). He will rehearse most of the solos as sections, and may leave many of them that way for the performance (which is fine). He called the opening imitative Dona nobis pacem "gorgeous," which was of course highly gratifying.
