I’d like to keep this short this morning. I have some work I would like to do before church. Yesterday I began composing a little piece based on “There’s a sweet, sweet spirit” by Doris Akers for my piano trio for Pentecost. I would like to get my notes (written on pieces of paper) into a Finale doc this morning.
I found this recording yesterday on YouTube of Doris Akers herself singing it.
I’m planning on stealing some licks from it. Either for my trio version or maybe even better as a descant for my sopranos.
Well that’s all for today. I want to get to work.
I’m working my way through this troubling article posted by one of my right wingers on facebooger. As far as I can see, it’s barely coherent. Written by a supposed educated young writer, it seems to start off ranting and descend into cherry picked examples. I plan to finish reading it when I am feeling up to it later.
What? Seems like a parable of our times.
