    Music for retreating
    Last blog for a week. After the match tomorrow I'll be off to a quiet place to prepare April's Iona retreat. Not being very experienced at this sort of thing I looked up Henry and Roy's Approaches to Prayer site for suggestions about the sort of music to use on retreat. And I'm afraid my R'n'R upbringing makes me unable to tell me Rutter from me Elgar.

    So, valuing their advice I'll be browsing the HMV classical section soon; but meanwhile I've decided also to stock up on modern compositions from Boomkat: to treat the retreatants to some fresher sounds. Johann Johannsson, Akira Rabelais and Nils Okland may not be Byrd or Brahms but they might turn out to be just the thing.

    In my absence you won't be short of sites to surf, but if you want music while you go, click on the Boomkat jukebox. It's a treat.
