This particular morning, though, grey and damp has returned with nary a glimpse of bright Phoebus. Am late again with Office and the morning's own nonsense but wanted to note that today is the first day I've seen an audience seated in Wigmore Hall in who knows how long-- it is a noontime concert given by clarinetist Michael Collins and pianist Michael McHale. I've joined at the last piece and am not 'staying'-- will go back to Chopin's mazurkas performed by Iddo Bar-Shaî-- but was enthused to see real people there again.
Ante Primam. Today is the feast of the Aragonese Confessor Saint Pascal Baylon (CE, Wiki, Introibo); born on the feast of Pentecost (hence his name, since Pentecost is 'the second Pascha'). And also the fifth day of the Ascension Octave.
It is also the feast of Saint Peter (19th century), of Saint Julia (19th century), and of Saint Victor (4th century).
V. Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. R. Deo grátias.
