Page 4 of Psalm 31 edited in the newer version of Encore -- tried awhile back unsuccessfully, but now seeming to work -- will hope for the best (older variety has suddenly developed a bug, where the palette highlighting is askew... leading one to wonder what else may go wrong). Quiz 8 follows for the Theoreticians, with musical examples drawn from Frederic Chopin, Richard Wagner, Giuseppe Verdi, Georges Bizet, Eric Satie, and Charles Ives; then, after lingering with students, head south to the Walnut Creek Apple Store, where (this time) they have cords in stock so that chords can still be written (have forgotten my dicey spare, and the main one has shorted out). Close to a surreal shopping experience: greeted at the door, they fetch the merchandise and do the point of sale with handheld gadget and card. Have barely walked into the store and the deal is done.
