Theory dictation is Louis Bourgeois's Old Hundredth, of John Calvinist fame,

[Thomas] Hobbes -- also chord numerals in major scales, plus A natural and harmonic minor, and D major. New recording of Abraham and Isaac: II. The Separation in the lab,
followed by another run to the University of California at Davis for another session with the full score of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem, for orchestrational inspiration re A & I. Checking the cellphone while walking to the library, receive great news re John Browning's situation in S. Cal., and positive greetings from the I.R.S.
