It was gorgeous. The choir was accompanied by flute, oboe, cello, harp, timpani, and of course the church organ. The accoustics in St Paul's are always wonderful - much better than in the new cathedral. Afterwards, it was a bit scary watching the choir members bring the instruments (particularly the harp and timpani) down from the choir loft. It took 4 men for the largest timpani and there are a couple of turns on the stairs from the loft.
Afterwards, I had dinner with both sons and then returned home to find some e-mails from poetry submissions I made back in June.
It was "no" for the poems I sent Alba, but a yes on one I sent Falling Star, a local LA print journal which pays in contributor copies (I met the editor last year at the Los Angeles Festival of Books).
I also received a contributor copy from Brevities, Joyce Odam's tiny little journal of minimalistic poetry.
