Was in the middle of testing
while rewiring.

Decided to write a few phrases.

Have been wanting to begin mixing
the insrumental sections more
for quite awhile,
but wasn't yet ready to
as a matter of mental gymnastics
which are so critical to any writing
beyond the most rudimentary.

I always liked the interspersing
of choral and organ music
as was done during the 1500's and 1600's
in the Netherlands, Spain, and Italy.

In Spain they would add trumpet stops
for the various interludes,
or, as in the case of the Gabrielli's,
would use trumpets along with the organ.

In any case,
I wrote this piece,
entitled 040313a
this morning at about 10 a.m.

It is dedicated to "j".

Hope you enjoy.

Ventura, California, USA


as a side note,
the weather has been
a weird mixture
of warm and cold.

But, during the warm times,
off come the shirts and jackets.


off come the pants and shoes.

Can't wait.

The sun feels extra good this year.

I think I need it more than usual
