Wot it syas in the title, basically. But the supervision was okay, even if I felt a bit under-prepared; and the tutorial was excellent: a good balance of encouraging and stretching, with some recommendations for my composing and for my listening. I've written up the supervision and the tutorial for my reference.

The concert was also good: Juice vocal ensemble doing their stuff excellently despite malfunctioning lights and heating (actually rather appropriate for the spookiness of the programme they were singing). I particularly enjoyed Philip Cooke's premiere... perhaps because in a programme that used what I would think of as non-standard techniques in almost every piece, something a little more normal was welcome.

In the interval a cathedral organist was talking to my someone else and asked about an unaccompanied Nunc dimittis suitable for Compline, which the someone else hadn't written; so I piped up and said he could have mine if he likes. I sent the e-mail when people were leaving the concert, then went along to the pub. I hope I didn't appear too keen, but... it's a risk, I guess.

On the way home from the pub I was caught up to by another PhD student who studies remotely, and who is staying in the same place as me. Lovely stuff, and good not to walk on my own. And we'll breakfast together with a third person, who I also met (earlier in the day) and who is staying here... good. I mean, I'm also perfectly happy to breakfast alone, but part of the point of being here is networking, and I may be better at this over breakfast than in a noisy crowded pub anyway.
