Further sketching

I am really pleased with the way the ideas for the second movement of the string quartet are coming. There is a purity of line which takes vigilance to maintain - to control the emotions and not gush prematurely, to avoid easy solutions that sully the taste and aroma. It has a definite religioso feel to it and seems to be arranging itself very readily for the quartet format, one of those pieces where the main line gets passed to each player in turn while spawning the occasional duet passage.
