The rain is trying to fall...

After a long afternoon of greying skies: it was beautiful in the morning and earlier in the afternoon but this has been coming for hours now.

A new book today. Christopher Page's The Christian West and its Singers, from 2010. 600 pages of history and music. Maestro Peter Phillips's review at the Atlantic in 2011 was the first one I arrived at, scrolling. (Will someone, in a thousand years, know what that means i.e. 'the first one arrived at, scrolling'? Maybe.) Many of the issues Phillips mentions seem at first glance to be editor's issues, not Page's, but I must read the book.
