I thought to post this as a way of whetting my appetite for the upcoming wave of WiPs. This is one of a few English madrigals I stumbled across on Youtube (a second sample follows below). I hope to dig around some more since I'd love to put together a playlist for Madrigal (a book I still have to work into the calendar).
As you know, I've been busy at the day job -- to a pretty excruciating point, even, though it's been a matter of me finally settling into the role I was trained to do when the company promoted me to production coordinator a couple of months ago. Long story, but we were so severely understaffed that I couldn't do anything more than be stuck in this limbo position of being a full-time fitter while taking care of a few of the day-to-day tasks I was supposed to be focusing on as a new coordinator.
But things are quieting down, I'm getting used to the rhythm, and all those tasks that intimidated me before don't feel too bad now, and I'm no longer as overwhelmed as I used to be. And that's good for my writing and all the me-time I gave up temporarily until the smoke cleared. I can finally reclaim those hours, and now it's a matter of catching up on some much-needed rest (I do nap a lot throughout my weekends after my writing time and in between chores).
Anyway, enough of the day job as it's just there for me to pay the bills with though I'm grateful it's also a job I enjoy doing and am actually good at. So, yeah -- I've been trying to expand my musical repertoire, if you will, by diving into the madrigal scene in Western Europe.
I hope to post an updated calendar soon, but I've said that before, and nothing's happened yet. Hopefully this time it'll actually happen, know what I mean? Because I'm excited about the future line up of books, and a calendar will also help me plan things out and make it all easier for me to actually get done.
