April 9 - Begging Thursday Cold Comfort

Further orchestration of King David: XXV. Census and Plague, followed by Quiz 12 for the Theoreticians (harmony from the 1960's and 70's) and the lab to finish and record the former, plus KD: XXIV. Rock and Strength.

Decamp anon to U.C. Davis, with two calls to Bette and George, research re G.F. Handel's Solomon, then returning begin orchestration of the analogous (the word always looks suspect), the first movement of which is actually troped instead on Ralph Vaughan Williams's Symphony No. 7 ("Sinfonia Antartica"): V. Epilogue finale, frozen music for an aged King David who can only warm up with the help of a new handmaiden... (Solomon: I. Let's Find a Young Woman).
