I keep meaning to “reduce” Nun of the Above for cl/pf.

Oh!  I have done. Some little while ago.

Revisiting this . . . I have the ears of two different conductors (so, four ears total):

This morning, I've prepared a fl/pf version of Nun of the Above, for Peter Bloom; and created a fresh (optional) harp part for the Alleluia in D.

Not much in the way of news, really:  I am still on the mend from one of the bugs which has been going around.  We had a Triad rehearsal last night, for a community outreach project:  a joint concert with a couple of school choirs on Saturday the 24th.  We have a ‘solo’ portion of the program in which we shall revive items we’ve already sung, and fairly recently – this will include the Gloria.  And we are singing two numbers as a massed choir, including one Alleluia from Triad’s inaugural concert, back when.

I had no voice for singing last night.  (I am hoping, God willing, to have voice enough to sing a chant along with my church choir at tomorrow’s Ash Wednesday service.)  But with the short timeframe, I had to put in an appearance.

What else?  I have been thinking about the Clarinet Sonata a great deal.  A pianist in Rochester who has played music of mine before is game;  logistics need to be worked out.  I’ve reached out to my publisher to see if we can interest an Atlanta clarinetist in the piece.  (On my last visit down yonder, I was introduced to two clarinetists who play with the ASO.)  To that end, I prepared (afresh, I suppose) audio files of the MIDI extrusions . . . so I have been listening to this, probably each day for a few days now.

I have had to rethink the April program at King’s Chapel, pushing A Heart So White out to October.  My “new work burden” for the concert has been down-pedaled to a 6-ish minute piece for four winds.

And here is the start.

Hi Karl: in your chamber piece here I find much more to intrigue the ear - in the opening section alone - than in 25 pages of the recently posted Violin Concerto of Professor Tison Street.   :o   0:)
