I suppose this is what they call a blog. Except that blogs are supposed to be updated more often than this is.

Radio Three started playing Handel’s My heart is inditing. Child, about 15 seconds in: “Daddy, are they going to play Zadok the Priest now?”.

(This was mostly good luck; she happens to have encountered ZtP recently and doesn’t have a lot of other choral music to compare with. As a measure of how much she doesn’t know, the next thing they played was Holst’s St Paul’s Suite and she asked “Is that by the same person who wrote Zadok the Priest?”.

Speaking of Zadok, in January my choir is organizing a big come-and-sing event in aid of EACH, featuring Zadok, three familiar bits of Parry, and Stanford’s Coronation Gloria. If you sing at all, please come along, have fun, and help a very worthwhile charity!
