I was astonished, how naturally I managed to fit the text to the piece.  There is no sense, I think, of a "forced graft," but it feels as if the music was composed for this text setting.

Well, that astonishment is shared, not in the sense that I doubted your abilities of course,  ;)  but precisely in the natural feel of everything!

After a cyclically unusual delay, tonight is the first Triad rehearsal.  And, therefore, our first go at It Might Happen Today.

I saw that the crowd was of a good size: any video or audio?  $:)

The Evensong was not itself recorded (I do not think);  this was a rehearsal take last Sunday

Kurosawa and Mistaken, I am afraid my general aversion to electronic interfered....

Preparations are well under way for the November Triad concerts. We're doing something a little different, a mixed program which is about half the full ensemble, half solo turns by individual singers. So this concert will include both my new It Might Happen Today (men's choir, text by eight-year-old Emma Wallingford) and Sudie Marcuse singing an abridged version of The Mystic Trumpeter (the full 20-minute piece would be incongruously great for the program). It will, therefore, also be the first Triad concert in which I play clarinet.

This is a lovely piece! I especially like the first half. The use of tape (is it still called that?) is sparkling and makes a nice composite (90% of the time Would prefer no tape sounds, but this is an exception). RR

Thanks, Ron!  Whenever I'm explaining "fixed media" I do resort to the old-school "tape" at need  ;)
