Once more into the breach, dear friends…

So tomorrow is phase 2 of the recording, a lot of time and effort gone into arranging parts and it is going to be a hard week. It’s also going to be a full house as we hae 2 violinists and Grant staying for most of the time. Eszter is coming all the way from Cluj-Napoca in Romania and Bettina, from Bath -not quite so exotic but still a fair old trek to play – so very grateful to both.

But tomorrow is guitars and cello, by the ridiculously talented Nigel Rippon. I can’t wait to get started! We’ll also be getting some more trumpet, this time from Duncan Fraser. More on the musicians another time, I think.

I was sad to hear that we won’t be allowed to use Vettriano pics in one of the artworks for the album booklet. Shame, seeing as the artwork in question was for Jack, which is essentially a song about him. Not to worry – we have had worse setbacks, and perhaps it is a blessing in disguise.

Now I must go and print the scores for the week so people know what to play.
