The pressure is easing somewhat in Editorial. I only have one more Christmas choral to get out for the demo—Gordon Jessop’s “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks”—and I am half finished with that. I have a dozen non-Christmas items to get to print. I am also developing a new small choral assortment for Easter.
We met with a dozen composers Tuesday night at Goodwoods Barbecue Co. at the University Mall to visit and network over dinner. It was a nice evening with Chemain Evans, Jan Underwood Pinborough, Penelope Moody Allen, Amy Baugh Hansen, C. C. Cole Edwards, Peggy Pearson, Janice Kapp Perry, Marden Pond, Brent Jorgensen, Clark Edwards, and others—a good time to review new works and to catch up with with these influential writers’ lives.
We discussed forming an Academy of LDS Print Music, which would be a means of recognizing outstanding contributions to our industry.
