Surely, the most cultured Regional Minister in BUGB! See you at Council.

Hi Sean! Jeremy Begbie, in his new book, Resounding Truth, Christian Wisdom in the World of Music (which is superb) has some interesting stuff on the physicality of music. Keeping with the arts, I've just got back from the Juan Munoz exhibition at the Tate, and the From Russia Exhibition at the Royal Academy. Both were excellent, but Mattise's La Danse has to be a high point - absolutely exhilarating. Recommended! All that and 20 minutes of scintillating Tom Wright at lunchtime at a Bible Society launch made for an enriching day.

Hi Geoff
No there isn't, and to be honest I am not sure that Strauss on CD or radio will ever quite be enough after this. The clarity of the orchestral playing live helped me to make sense of what often sounds like decadent chaos - something about being able to see everyone moving as well as hear them playing perhaps.

Sounds as if it was something else - I'm envious! I may check it out on the radio, but there's nothing quite like being there in the moment is there? Geoff
