Okay, I've called Peter and Charles to ask after some logistical minutiæ (may need an extra extension cord, and where is thermostat, should the space be too cool when I get there?)


I was just busy with the usual kind of things at the desk, but as the workflow slows down, I'll get itchy to head off and get ready for the show . . . .

Big thanks to Mahlerian for coming to the show! Everything went well, and we had a wonderful audience. (Not a large audience, but wonderful.)

Happily, I wasn't the only one who had fun, and everyone is ready to play the program again.

Those swine did not list my concert on their calendar.

The Boston Music UNintelligencer!

Nice to hear that the turnout was at least acceptable!  And yes, wonderful that MAHLERIAN attended!!! 8)

As far as the Boston Music UNintelligencer goes, one is tempted to ascribe a malign intention, but these days incompetence pure and galling is more likely.

Judging by the great results, the music must've been truly inspiring.

Thank you once again for inviting me.  Oxygen Footprint was exquisite.

I wait in anticipation as this was a highly inventive piece, Karl. Lovely.

Only a bagatelle.  When at Charles's house for the 9th Ear meeting Wednesday, his toy piano was on the dining room table, and I thought, Why not write a piece for shakuhachi and toy piano?

I believe I will adapt this for use on Easter Sunday.

So, as to my work last night . . . first of all, I needed something in the choir’s folder right away for our Maundy Thursday/Good Friday mash-up service (which still fits into a tidy hour)—right away, because it is time to rehearse it.  Of course, it needs to be easy, manageable.  So I took O Traurigkeit as I find it in the now-antique 1940 Episcopal Hymnal, slipped it down to e minor from the published f minor (both so that there are fewer accidentals for our organist—don’t get me started, just don’t—and to make an easier transposition for the woodwind) and arranged it so that the choir’s singing of the two verses are surrounded by organ and clarinet in A phrases.  The easiest organ writing in the world—don’t get me started, just don’t.

I wrote it so that I can both conduct from the clarinet, and sing most of the bass part for the choir.

And then, because we need something to ring the handbells for Easter, and we have a teenager who is an enthusiastic young music and who plays flute, I took Liv Plays Scrabble (shakuhachi and toy piano) and adapted it for C flute and handbell choir.

Obviously, Liv Plays Scrabble would make for an eccentric Easter title (at best) so I re-christened (you see what I did there) the score Song of the Empty Tomb.

The arrangement of O Traurigkeit was quite well received last night.  Start out with good source material, of course, and if you avoid mistakes you won't go far wrong  0:)
