Woah, I’m a slacker!

Well, no not actually. I lied to you in the title!! I’m actually ridiculously busy, but since I’m busy with things I enjoy, I can’t complain!

Rehearsals for the show are going well. Apart from the usual costuming horrors (clarification: the costume folk are great, the costumes are great – I, however, remain a sausage shaped nightmare to clothe).

Anyway! Bought myself a score of the Bach Mass in B minor – bliss! I got trapped in Arty Bee’s for quite some time when I discovered the music section.

Also new song sooo beautiful: Silent Noon by Ralph Vaughan Williams (you may know his Lark Ascending). So evocative of a summer’s day, spent with someone you love, in perfect silence.

Have a listen to Ian Bostridge singing it. I was going to try to find a woman but he sings it so expressively I want you to hear it. 🙂
