Hi there, and happy summer to you!
What a summer it has been. The project to publish and Alice Mary Smith's sacred music is now live and is nearing completion! The CDs are currently being pressed, and the book is being proofread!
After a long residency in Germany in June-July, I'll be heading back there in a few weeks to record the second half of my second solo CD, featuring romantic music for Advent and Christmas. The first part of it was recorded in typical seasonal temperatures of some forty degrees!
I am looking forward to another year of work at the University of York, especially as I'll be starting the HE teacher training programme alongside my research and teaching. It's hard work, but it's so rewarding to see these incredibly talented young people grow as musicologists and humans.
