  Back to the B minor Mass in a moment...

...but first I have some reading to catch up on. Due to a recent move to bigger digs I have fallen behind the times. Getting all my things across town and settling in has taken more time than I thought and would have liked. But now that I am comfortable I see that my last post is starting to get stale but, as I said, first I have some reading to do.

While I was lifting boxes, Robert Gable made some interesting points about "Nixon in China" for future audiences. Mwanji Ezana, returned from Martinique, enjoyed some open-air concerts that included a performance on an instrument called the "oud." Charles T. Downey made a fantastic list of operas to enjoy and Jessica Duchen had some strong remarks regarding Brendel and Birtwistel. It is past time for me to turn in so I will have to finish Kyle Gann's August archieve tomorrow and delay the pleasure of learning what Alex Ross and Helen Radice have been up to.

'till tomorrow, then.

In January 2004 I starting writing an opinion for each selection in the Norton Recorded Anthology of Western Music. Now, more than a year later, I am almost finished. Soon, I will have an archive full of opinions on the music we so carelessly call "classical." And no one can stop me.
