… and perhaps goodbye blog.

I am taking my leave and seeing how it goes. It’s time to try it out. If I find I miss it too much I’ll be back.

BUT first I just have something to say to my students and anyone else who is willing to listen to me regarding music: a rest does not always mean take a breath. A rest is not always the end of a phrase. A rest can actually be part of the line.

Think about it.

And now over ‘n out.

For now, anyway.

If I really don’t return I leave you with VOCES8. Of course I leave you with VOCES8 even if I’m back later. I’m nice that way.

Session footage from VOCES8’s recording of ‘Momentary’ by Ólafur Arnalds, arranged by Geoff Lawson. The track features on Ólafur’s album release ‘re:member (choir versions)’ which can be found on all digital platforms.


  1. For what it’s worth, I’m still a loyal reader of your blog..

  2. Thank you, Robert. Should I miss it I’ll be back … I’m just not sure what will happen at this point!

    Feeling old and tired at the moment ….

  3. I’ll be sorry to see the end of this blog, if it IS the end, butI certainly understand the feeling of age and the need for a change of pace. And if you’ve gotta go out, what better way than with Voces8?

  4. Please, please come back! I’ve been following for so many years and miss your posts!

    Must have been an awesome burden to so faithfully find and post new content so frequently.

  5. Goodness, what kind words, Robert! Thank you so very much.

    And yes, I’m back. For now, at least.
