The hat was my biggest "haul" to date.

No "hot" news by me.

Very pleased with how this week's recital went at King's Chapel.

Getting music rehearsed for a 20 June recital at St Paul's;  still waiting for word on the new and well-reputedly excellent cellist's availability.

May at long last have found a brass quintet to play Moonrise.

And I am cooking up a piece for three soli voices and light percussion, for a Cambridge-based ensemble;  they provided the texts, exquisite old Portuguese Christmas ballads.

Don't worry; I've long ago gathered that your 'King's Chapel' isn't our real one as well.... ;) :-*

I guess, had I thought about it, I should have known there was a King's Chapel otherwheres than on Tremont Street!  ;)

More work done on Castelo dos anjos for three soli voices and percussion, on antique Christmas texts (three in Portuguese, one in Spanish).

All the texts are so lovely, I didn't have the heart to reject any of them, so I figured I'd make a 'mini cantata' of it.

Also, in timing of rightness on a cosmic scale, the three of us are going to visit a Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, Massachusetts for a private tour led by the museum's founder this afternoon.

Sounds very exciting, Karl! :D

Peculiarly, wound up with an unexpected day off, so I'm keen at work on Castelo dos Anjos.

Karl,
Not to get too sidetracked, but was just wondering what classical category you would place your music in, or a better question, if someone else were to categorize your classical music, what heading might they use that you would give at least an affirmative nod to.

Well, right now, Bill, this piece . . . Maria has described as "African or Middle Eastern."  (This is essentially for this first of four texts, and the character will change imminently.)

The performers for whom I'm writing have asked for something with 'a Sephardic flair' . . . I'm just hoping this flair may serve :-)

Henning's Headquarters...

The composer's batcave, perhaps.  ;D

Very pleased with progress on Castelo dos Anjos.

Worked some more on the bus this morning, too.

I must say, I've been into Karl's Evening Service lately, particularly the Magnificat. For all the world, and I pray (insofar as I can) that Karl won't take offense, but this is the only way I can phrase this: It reminds me of De Staat. But, you know, joyful and convivial (as opposed to grinding and oppressive). The whole Evening Service is really nice, but the Magnificat is the one piece that sticks with me.

Just my two cents.
