En route to the Caribbean for Thanksgiving. Stephen is listening to archival recordings of 10 years of holiday concerts at the Kennedy Center as we have promised each other that during this vacation we will work on laying out the upcoming Holiday CD. He just handed me his headset…. Bagpipes playing "Scotland the Brave" as a quodlibet with "O Come All Ye Faithful" (you need to listen to our Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel CD if you don’t know what a quodlibet is J). I had totally forgotten this concert, but in 5 seconds, I was back at the Kennedy Center with 80 pipers coming down the aisle, playing, joining the orchestra on stage. I do not know how we will record that, but how could it be left off the CD???
