An interesting article in the Guardian by Robert Thicknesse about his attempt to reconstruct what a Greek chorus would sound like by getting Roxana Panufnik to write something using the reconstructed rules of Ancient Greek composition. Unfortunately, its being broadcast on Tuesday July 11th at 1.30pm (on BBC Radio 4) which precludes listening for many of us.

We're off to ENO tonight for our last opera of the season, Purcell's King Arthur in the new production by choreographer Mark Morris. He's dumped the Dryden text and reviews have been many and varied. I look forward with interest, but I'm not holding my breath.
