Quote from: Luke on April 13, 2023, 10:07:22 AMIt seems to be the day for getting replies to emails - Gavin Bryars and Daniel Grimley replied last week, but today I've heard first from Daniel Jaffe and, just now, a really touching email from Judith Weir.
Quote from: Luke on June 04, 2023, 09:05:28 PMStill in the stressful process of applying for permissions to use quotations in my book, I wrote to the conductor Christoph Schlüren, who had written some words on Foulds' April-England i want to quote. He replied not only with permission but also with digital copies of the scores to the piece in both piano and orchestral versions (I had the former but not the latter) and with an offer to read the whole manuscript through for me.People are so kind!

Quote from: Luke on July 22, 2023, 08:50:39 AMOh, same as before. Deadline to get the completed manuscript to him, all permissions granted, is September. Sorry I've been away for a bit. The end of term was ridiculously hectic.

QuoteAbsolutely beautiful, Luke: What a stunning piece of work. It was so before, when I saw it in the rough; it's even more so now.Getting down to technicalities, you have taken such pains over the text that I don't think it needs copy editing and so I have immediately laid it out on the page and started the typesetting—really as an exercise for myself, but also to give to you as an early gift.What I am especially delighted by is that what I thought would be a problem—your insistence on Roman and italic for the two narratives—turns out not to be a problem at all. Normally, I simply refuse to oscillate between fonts; young writers love it and I find it modish and juvenile when the job of different voices is given to the typeface instead of the writing—but in your case I completely see the logic...[some technical issues]Anyway, I think it's looking terrific and can't wait to typeset the rest of it. Well done. I think we'll try for April publication—but don't hold me to it.
Quote from: Luke on September 12, 2023, 04:32:44 PMYes, I'm sorry, I've been rather absent for a while. My wife has not been well and looking after has taken me away from my usual online time.Yesterday I was, however, finally able to get the final draft of my book off to my editor, who hasn't seen anything of the revisions I have been making to it in the last months; tonight he replied with an email beginning:...which is all very pleasing and confidence-boosting.
