(1) - A NEW MAC - A COUPLE OF NEW CLIPS - AND AN IMPROVED ONLINE LESSON EXPERIENCE

I have recently upgraded and converted from a PC to a Mac which has radically altered my life. In addition, it has significantly enhanced delivery of my online lessons. [Note: Details regarding online lessons are available at my website: www.extremeflute.com ] Also, you can get some idea of the improvements in quality by checking out a couple of new, short, casual flute clips which now appear at the following links (and which may be of musical interest to some of you in their own right):

(i) "Tough Lover", Etta James (…a dynamite bit of R&B!…)

(ii) "Chain Lightening", Steely Dan (…in response to a longstanding request...which is so longstanding that I can't even recall who made it!… :)

(2) - MORTEN LAURIDSEN'S "O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM"

You might want to set this particular item aside for close follow-up later because, if you don't already know this choral work by Morten Lauridsen, then it will likely be something of a revelation to you. "O Magnum Mysterium" is Lauridsen's most famous composition to date (with perhaps "Dirait-on" from Les Chansons des Roses running a close second). In any event, if this is your first encounter with "O Magnum Mysterium", then I suggest you find a quiet place…close your eyes…try not to think about anything…and then start the track…The clip is located here and it is about five-and-a-half minutes in length:
