Ring & Creation

I've a piece in today's Independent about Gergiev and the Ring Cycle, at Covent Garden together next week; also a write-up in Standpoint blog today about The Creation at the Proms the other night. And a piece in Standpoint Magazine about The Creation in general, as believe it or not it is my favourite piece of music of all time.

Introducing SONGS

Video from the launch bash for Songs of Triumphant Love. Viewable at Standpoint.

I suppose I ought to apologise for the self-promotion, since I am British (did you know that nobody else gives a damn about such things? It's only Brits who think we're Bad People if we say we've written something). But after all the hard work, I'd quite like people to know that the book exists, and since it is not at the front of Waterstone's, if I don't do something then nobody will ever know. Such is life and the book trade.
