Dear readers, I am merging this blog with my new website at www.laurelmasse.com. All the posts and comments have danced over to the new venue. There will be some further tuning, as there always is, and so this blog will stay up for a little while, but from now on, the pieces I've written here and those I'll be writing in the future, as well as information about my concerts and recordings, teaching and preaching, and everything else that forms part of my eccentric career will be available at www.laurelmasse.com.
Thanks are due to Typepad, for the simplicity and elegance its platform offers to a novice blogger. It was a great place to begin.
