November 22 - Carnival of Earthly Deights

Finish reconstructing the September 2005 issue of 21st-Century Music, then head off to U.C. Davis to rendezvous with the full score of Camille Saint-Saens's Samson and Delilah for orchestrational advice. Turns out it is only available on microfilm, with the piano-vocal version looking a little lonely on the shelf. Decide that Carnival of the Animals may be of use, heading back in the brisk chill to gas at an astounding $1.96 in reliable Dixon

and the first four orchestrated pages of S&D: I. Digits.
