heinichen It suddenly occured to me that since  a permanent restraining order has issued against Bacchus visiting the old homestead, there’s nothing to stop me taking my weekly wine budget and putting it to use improving my library of books and musick.  Right?

To this end, I’ve finally gone and picked up the Dresden Concerti of Johann David Heinichen (1683-1729), a contemporary of Bach whose musick I’ve been meaning to study more deeply for some time now.  I also picked up a new pair of headphones so that I could listen in peace, cut off from the tumult and the shouting of the captains and the queens that ranges through the house most of the day and night.
