February 25 - In Cumuli

Down the 680 corridor past the Sulfur Springs Mountains, Long Barn, Chinese Wall,


Horse Farm,

Stone Wind Running Fence,

The Rills --

under clouds over the Benicia Bridge --

to the glare of a blooming St. Mary's with works from the Dublin Virginal Composer (b. c. 1540) to Giovanni Gabrieli (1553-1612), and DVC for dictation and harmony based on J.S. Bach's Passacaglia in C Minor, plus engaging compositions by Tyler Layne, Thomas Magleby, and Diocletian: Happy Funeral Music. Marin run, back to the classroom briefly, then home -- helping Harriet with Marriage of Figaro costumes and projections, finishing up orchestration of Saul! Saul!: VII.-VIII. Oh, Fairest! / Is There a Man? (12 pages total) and beginning that of IX. Hide and Seek (6).
