We mostly worked on the river music set, which is really two sets — the Psalm 137 set and the Silver Swan set.
- Bop duets
- Silver Swan Round
- Grace et vertu
- Bruce’s Wordsworth setting
- Campian, Babylon Streams
- Estans assis
- Billings, Lamentation over Boston
- Arcadelt, Il bianco e dolce cigno
- Dowland, Me, me and none but me
I think the conclusion was that the Arcadelt really belongs with
the other Silver Swan ones, but the round doesn’t. The Campian is ok,
but probably not interesting enough as is for 9 verses. It would of
course be better in a setting where people were singing along.
So our river music set(s) are shaping up to be:
- Estans Assis
Comments, additions, deletions, order changes?
Next week (February 15) is a regular rehearsal, to which we hope Bruce
and Stuart will come. Anne will be in Spain.
So the next possible A-list rehearsal is February 22. Note that
this is not a definite schedule until I send out the email invitation.
Bonnie was asking whether it was necessary to check the blog as
well as read the email.
My policy is that anything that affects scheduling will be sent out
However, I’m putting a lot of stuff that people here might be
interested in in the blogs. For instance, this morning I did the
corrections to the music that we found last night, and described them
the publishing blog
In other words, there isn’t going to be a rehearsal you’ll miss by
not reading the blogs, but if you want to know what I’m up to, you may
want to check both my personal blog
