March 2 - Somewhere Overboard

In the driving rain to St. Mary's for the Renaissance-Baroque transition -- Giovanni Gabrieli (1553-1612) to Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1642) -- then DVC for dictation/harmony based on the J.S. Bach Cantata 140 ("Wachet Auf"): VII. Chorale, with Chris Knight assisting at the board. In the lab thereafter, recording Saul! Saul!: IX. Hide and Seek Ye and X. Author of Peace. Then, in the car, over the past the rainbow-penetrated Mothball Fleet,

with clouds over the Sulfur Springs Mountains,

Chinese Wall, Dinosaur Spine,

Twin Sisters,

Vaca Mountains,

Fairfield Pyramids,

Poverty Hills,

to a clearing of the Lagoon

and North Lagoon Ridges, beginning the orchestration of S!S!: XI. Make an Offer (3 pages).
