A busy couple of days, made just slightly more edgy by the loss of an hour on Sunday morning and an early start. Still, onwards and upwards, and a few performances, one lecture and one rehearsal later here I sit on Tuesday morning catching up with a little admin.
From here to the weekend it is all about playing, whether in Holy Week services or with my saxophonist colleague, and I should also mention that my arrangement of This Joyful Eastertide will be performed at Evensong on Easter Day at St. Mary Abbots. It is possible that it may be being performed elsewhere as well, but the Mabbots performance is the only one of which I am aware.
I managed to get some more work done on the Missa Loquebantur Variis Linguis on Saturday in a quiet moment, also because Aprille with his shoures soote is just around the corner and the deadline for this work is hoving into view. It is still progressing nicely, even if a new idea I had over the weekend might necessitate a recasting of the sections I have already written.
Next week will be quieter, a chance to catch my breath after an uncharacteristically hectic start to the year, one that has been full of possibilities for the future. As always, I expect only the smallest fraction of those things to come to pass and will regard anything extra as a bonus, but having possibilities to hand is always a good thing.
For now though, it is one day at a time, one step at a time, one note at a time. They all add up.
