Tyler had school Mass today so that took care of the morning, then I went to a meeting this afternoon to discuss the state of church music in Invercargill. As it is elsewhere, traditional music is being taken over by contemporary music, some of it excellent, but much of it trite and repetitive. We all believe there is still a place for cantors, Pslams, Magnificats etc.

I have been asked to adjudicate a school music festival at a local high school next month. Very nice to be asked but a bit nerve-wracking.

Packing is under way - Chris is much more enthusiastic than I! His idea of packing clothes is to simply upend the contents of his drawers into boxes and then throw the wardrobe contents into another box. Effective but he better not think I'll be ironing the crumpled results!
