EUBO's Back, and This Time We've Got Nametags

So after three weeks of downtime (or 'up' time for some), EUBO is back at it, this time in Milano. Though much shorter than our tour in July/August, this one will see us performing three separate programs in six concerts(!). The new program, centered around Handel's Utrecht Te Deum and Jubilate, is currently 'under construction' in Santa maria della passione, Milan. After four concerts of this program, we're then off to debut the season at St. John Smith's Square in London. We'll then say our goodbyes to the choir of Clare College Cambridge before heading to LogroƱo to finish off the Lure of London program.

Doubtless it will be a bit hectic. I'm sure well make it happen.

A surprise yesterday, we only gave ourselves 45 minutes to work on the birthday ode for Queen Anne, Eternal Source of Light Divine or, as I call it, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. Basically playing every movement twice with the exception of the opening movement, a sensitive adagio duo for trumpet and alto backed by strings, we felt much better about the work. It seems it only needed a bit of time 'under the pillow', as Zefira put it.

Take a look at the panorama of Santa maria della passione, the church we'll be performing in this evening.
