January 7 - Story

Watch a couple of old movies for counterpoint re ongoing work on The Bible, including George Stevens's The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965, music by Alfred Newman, Max von Sydow as Jesus, Charleton Heston as John the Baptist, Claude Rains as Herod the Great, John Wayne as the Centurian...) and

The Robe (1953, again Alfred Newman, Richard Burton, Victor Mature) while doing tuba parts for Pini di Surriento and Salome Suite; plus more Vespers of 2010 and page 2 of Magnificat: IV. Omnes generationes orchestrated.
