Choosing the note

This week's chant conundrum is which note to start Lauda Sion on. I've gone for Bb ( or Si b or B, depending on your chosen note nomenclature.) This choice renders the beginning somewhat low and grumbly and the end attainable.

Meantime, have just seen an add for the Dyson digital wand thingy. Hoovering with a light sabre. Why does Star Wars never feature any housework?

Veni Sancte Spiritus

On the menu this week.

Last year's links here.

How things move on in a year.

Les Dialogues des Carmelites by Poulenc

On BBC iPlayer for another six days.

Spoiler alert. Ends with the sisters' execution by guillotine. Listen as they sing the Salve Regina, punctuated by the metallic ching of the blade.

Not sure if the present production is a revival of this.
