I hope won’t mind me sharing this glorious letter from Elisabeth Lutyens to Walton, written the day I was born. (I feel like she may not have met that many working class people...)

Purcell’s Chacony - not many pages of manuscript contain more remarkable harmonies than this one.

Ugh, you’d just millennialsplain everything... But don’t knock stovetop kettles! (Ok I’ll give you a call when I upgrade my laptop...)

This is very funny, but so confusing for me. Can I just stick with Sibelius 3?

Is it too early for Christmas Carols? Not when they’re sung so exquisitely by under (CD includes my Carol Eliseus, in Welsh!)

This calls for repeat marks around the last fifty bars...

It’s very funny. Also, I just noticed ‘Wicker Mann’ - brilliant!

Fantastic article! (I just hope you didn’t come up with ‘naval gazing’...)

Oh no! Of course, you’re right. (Composers sometimes get a little touchy when either ‘tonal’ or ‘atonal’ crops up pejoratively...) Now, time to see if I can do a trill while conducting!

Is some of it not slightly atonal? The odd passage? There are some remarkable harmonies in that piece (I must check to be sure) that don’t quite seem to be contained by the words ‘tonal’ or ‘modal’ - or I could just be wrong...

Excited to hear the Emersons later. Also, who knew Britten #3 was in G major?
