    Alas, Richard -
    April has come and April has gone,
    And May is gone and June is come
    So thus the year's half won.

    I may have contributed this already, but...
    Many years ago, whilst I was at St Ambrose, we proudly 'accomplished' our first a cappella motet. After mass a lady approached us and gushingly said 'Oh I just loved ya'lls avacado anthem'.

    I have to admit I at first thought The Hot Pitches might plausibly be in the early music game. So, did TAO have anything interesting to say about what looks more like a guide to genre music?

    Might have an organ-sit myself later tonight.
