The precious slice of hell I endured this evening was for a Concordia Society concert in Newburyport on Sunday. We're doing some cool stuff, including some madrigals by Montiverdi, a Bach motet, and this absolutely gorgeous piece by Norman Lockwood. I'd be more excited, but I'm also in the process of memorizing Stravinsky's "Symphony of Psalms" and Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloe" for a BSO concert series next week. Plus, I work. Pity me as I collapse into a sobbing heap.
