Final preparations

Well its only a couple of days to our Chelsea Festival concert. We have the first rehearsal with the organist, Malcolm Cottle, tonight. Which means that I will be on tenterhooks as it will be my first opportunity to hear my new piece, Crossing with the organ accompaniment. As the piece is a Passacaglia, with the main passacaglia tune in the organ for all but its final incarnation, this means that the organ part rather important and something more than accompaniment. So tonight is my first go at hearing what the piece really does sound like.


Though the concert is part of the Festival, there are still logistical things we have to worry about like rehearsal times, making sure we don't impinge on the church's regular services and finalising programmes. Oh, and trying to work out where we'll be going for a drink afterwards since both the nearby pubs have closed (this part of Chelsea seems to have become completely dry). Not to mention the little matter of who is playing whom during the world cup.
