What does everybody think of Whitsun Wakes by Michael Ball? We went through it for the first time last night (as one of our potential own choice pieces) Personally, I think the piece is very nice to listen to and very straight forward, perhaps too nice and too straight forward. I like my music with a bit of a mean streak... (did someone say Blitz?) There were a few funny moments as the flugel and horn players (sop also?) made their first attempt (sight read) at those crazy triplet cadenza things.
