September 27 - Various Musical Opportunities
Overnight, hear tell of interesting prospects, meriting update of various materials --
morning commute and weekly
Theoretical Quiz (examples for this the sixth keyed to baroquish Monteverdi, Gesualdo [arguably a stretch], Schutz, Purcell, Vivaldi, and J.S. Bach),
Marin transit (picking up current and back issues of the Journal from the printer enroute)
twist: first down to
Westminister Presbyterian Church,
happily re-encountering Barbara Rowe, who from her old position as Lay Pastor is now the official clergiate head, with her charming daughter (who played Jesus back in Stephen Schwartz's Godspell and/or Andre Lloyd Webber's epinonimous Superstar) now Professor of Geology at McGill University in sometimes iceboxy Montreal.
Mount Tamalpais United Methodist Church, of concert-presenting fame, among other qualities (memories including what was among the earliest reviews for 20th-Century Music, as well as an impressive Russian telling of Igor Stravinsky's Histoire du Soldat).
Meet up with the friendly Office Manager,
revisiting the lovely sanctuary and other interesting spots,
then bop north through Larkspur
Ross to check the post box, and Princeton has re-subscribed to the Journal.
