Well, after a few final tweaks to notes and typesetting, today I passed the completed scores on to David Flood, Organist and Master of the Choristers at Canterbury Cathedral, so that he could begin to work on the piece with the Trebles. To be honest, I don’t think it will take them very long to learn it at all – they are very talented musicians who sing seven services a week and regularly tackle repertoire far more complex than my piece!
Having passed it over, it’s now a case of waiting – perhaps for a question or two from David – there may be something in the score that I haven’t made clear or something that he feels doesn’t quite work.
With under two weeks until the Baptism, at least I don’t have to wait too long to hear my piece performed. I’m hoping that I may be allowed to take a recording – if so, I’ll post it on here, and make the final complete copy available to view and purchase, should you wish to use the piece with your own singers.
