Incidentally, it detracts nothing from the gratitude I feel toward those Three Graces, that the person I missed most at the Colloquium, (despite fierce competition from Mons. Wadsworth, and a lovely religious sister whose name I can never recall, and Dom Mark Kirby -- hmmm, notice a pattern here?) (okay, also Kathy Pluth, breaking pattern...) the person who I kept finding myself wishing were there, was Arlene Oost Zinner.
What a debt, not just the CMAA, not just musicians, but all of anglophone Christendom, owes her!
