Bach and New Brunswick Bricks and Berries

Tuesday, 20 March 2007, 8:21 am, St. Stephen, NB

Long day; twelve hours straight. Protective canopy in place over the sidewalk, as pieces of brick persist in raining down from the façade of the 19th century building that now houses the town hall. S.C.’s house flooded, once again, this time to the basement doorknobs. Senior management meeting with the director of operations and the treasurer. To St. George for Enterprise Charlotte’s community growth strategies. Council press release. And Council itself, which, unexpectedly, included praise for yours truly the CAO.

On the drive to and from St. George, listened carefully for the first time to Bach’s secular cantatas BWV 205 and 207; these are magnificent. The latter has a thrilling adaptation of the third movement and the trio of the last movement of the first Brandenburg Concerto. In St. George, stopped into the grocery store on Main Street and came away with a berry pie for a mere three dollars.
