I remember now, that this call was the occasion for hoisting these MIDI demos up to YouTube (as exhibits supporting the submission of the scores) last year.

Today is the day that Verdant Vibes promised to announce the results.  They get full marks for this courtesy message today:

Happy September, everyone!

We're still hashing out programming details and trying to choose from over 750 pieces, so we apologize for the delay. We'll notify you of the results of our call for scores as soon as we can.

Thanks again for sharing your work!

Wow, Karl. These selections are wonderful. Great job! Some viewer on YT mentioned there were Copland-like sonorities here and it’s difficult not to disagree. I could be wrong, but I think it has to do with the spacing of the music itself --- it kind of has that breath to it that is somewhat similar to Copland’s. Of course, there’s also the possibility I’m crazy. :)

Out of the blue (which may just be the vehicle) I got an e-mail message from an organist expressing interest in serving at our church.  A quick search suggests that she knows her stuff.  We shall see!

We do have subs scheduled through the end of October, although we do have two Thursday evening choir rehearsals which could serve as a sort of audition.

Our first choir rehearsal of the season is . . . tomorrow evening, and I am planning to run it sans accompanist.

Many of the anthems which I have scheduled for September & October, we have sung more than once before;  so there is a lot of rehearsal I can do which is just singing the part along with the choir.  For my “torch song” version of I Want Jesus to Walk With Me (which we sang the last-ish Sunday before the choir disbanded for summer), and for Allen Webber’s arrangement of Come, Thou Font (on a tune which is not St James’s Air), I will have MIDI piano which I can play from my phone, via bluetooth, on a portable speaker.  (No, but really.)  We shall see how it goes!

Excellent rehearsal tonight. Kurosawa's Scarecrow sounds lovely, as does the flute duet, Neither do I condemn thee. We rehearse the Tiny Wild Avocadoes this Tuesday.

Really nice, Karl! I like your use of layering and discontinuity as well as the crystal clear percussion.

Unfortunately, I won't even be in the US that day, so I can't make it.  I hope it goes well, though!
