Well, last night was the first rehearsal for our concert at the Chelsea Festival. I know, its not far away, but this year we're trying concentrating all the rehearsals in a short period - sort of short, sharp, shock treatement. I always find the first run through of a piece unnerving, but things went very well and my big new piece, Crossing sounds rather promising.

Tomorrow we're off to Grange Park Opera in Hampshire, so see Massenet's Thais an opera I fell in love with when I saw it at the Royal Northern College of Music in 1974 (with a young Robin Leggate as Nicias) and have not seen it staged since.

Thursday night's Ariodante at ENO was fabulous and a review will appear in due course.

Tomorrow morning I'm playing hookey from St. Mary's Cadogan St., Chelsea, and going to St. George's Church, Hanover Square where they are performing my Missa Veni Sancte Spiritu, great fun.
