I have decided to try and finish 'There is a Spirit' by 4th June for this call for scores.

Today I have mostly been on a train (I am still on a train), but I did at least do some prep work. The idea I have for the text I want to set (not going into detail, that would be telling!) requires rather a lot of said prep work; but I'm now at a point where I need to either make a decision about some syllables, or find out more information in order to make said decision. I've opted for asking the Twitter hivemind about it, and if I haven't heard back something useful by tomorrow I'll just... make the decision according to instinct.

I've lost a patron from Patreon but it was a relative so I don't feel like I can complain. Ho hum.

Yesterday was meant to be a day off, but then I realised that I needed to put Round Me Falls the Night online, so I did that instead.

Meanwhile, I'm going to be on this train for a while yet, and there are some fragments I can do without having made the syllables decision, so I think I'll put my mind to those.

I saw your syllable question, and I don't know the answer. As a singer, neither would particularly phase me (she says, having only just broken the habit of singing 'heaven' in one syllable instilled at the last choir). Though it might be relevant that, while your text dates from 1660, you don't.
