Here's something we missed

The Julian Anderson Prom premiere WAS something I'd like to have heard, but unfortunately we were travelling back from Estonia at the time. Shame. It's nice to read in The Times article about Anderson joining the London Philharmonic Chorus before writing the choral piece. There are too many piece that I've done where the composer has patently never listened to how a chorus works. Obviously we can't all learn every instrument that we want to write for, but there should be the world of a difference between pushing boundaries and simply writing stuff that is unnecessarily difficult.
