According to this and also to this, Tallis' landmark 40-part motet Spem in Alium is getting an outing on the Canongate in ten days. It's not often performed, and with beautiful timing I've arranged to be out of the country.

This doesn't mean you can't go. In fact, I'll be quite disappointed if none of you do. If you don't know what the fuss is about, read this and listen to this.

A choir and seven pieces (including, IMO, one of the finest pieces of music ever written) for only eight of your Earth pounds. Sounds like a bargain to me.

In other news, the being-out-of-the-country involves flying from Schiphol to Minneapolis tomorrow.

Today, Katla is restive. Probably it'll come to nothing. Probably nothing. Probably.

An "in period costume" visit may be required! I can't seem to find anywhere selling tickets though.

Sounds good. The List page has a phone number on.

Looks like a good programme altogether. And the Canongate Kirk, being not especially large, works well for such things.
