The past seven days have in large part been consumed in the effort (musically rewarded) to compose through the Op.129. I had started it back in June, left it be while I attended to other pieces, and in the back of my mind there was some sort of doubt annoying me. Not at all about the text, which I knew would make for a smashing piece; but the smashing piece was taking its sweet time coming to me.
Well, I have by now discovered it, and it is (if anything) even hotter than I had hoped.
I have choir rehearsal tonight, so production is paused; but I already see my path through to the end.
