Second draft of David Morgan's Concerto for Solo Percussion and Orchestra has been made after suggestions from the composer. Mastering will be completed at a later date, as this is for the 2019 quota of CDs.

The overdubbing of the singers for my opera Dracula has begun with a spectacular session of the three female vampires. Lorina Gore, Catherine Bouchier and Silvia Colloca proved to be a very seductive trio. This evening will record all the part of Doctor Van Helsing (Peter Coleman-Wright) and some of the young tenor Jonathan Harker (Nicholas Jones). Next week will record the balance of Harker, Doctor Seward (Barry Ryan) and the lunatic Renfield (David Hamilton). That will leave only Lucy and Dracula to record, probably in October.
