January 19 - Songs in the Dark

Another day of, at times, seemingly relentless rain, and Harriet out braving it again in the Central Valley, returning to last week's job, so it's time to prepare two new pieces for publication, Psalm 1 and 2 of

Psalms, Op. 172 (the former seemingly quite innocent, yet with the beginning of a mixolydian transformation of Heinrich Schutz's setting interwoven into it). Dinner with m'lady upon her return, then compose another page of Vespers: I. Deus in adjutorium.
