Hello and welcome to my new Dizwell website.
If you came here looking for Oracle database tips or installation scripts, they aren't here (nor available from anywhere else, as far as I know). I gave up doing Oracle for a living in 2016 and don't intend to re-start doing it any time soon
In this website, there will be some computer-related material, but only in so far as I need to write about the technical back-end to my main interest these days, which is music -listening, production and management. How you rip CDs, get the metadata correct for the audio tracks that result, what operating system makes the best audio-managing and -listening platform… that sort of thing. Definitely no Oracle!!
Thus there will be extended pieces about my primary musical loves: Bach, Britten and Vaughan Williams. But anything from Aaron Copland to Zoltán Kodály will generally warrant my attention now and again!
There will also be a place for my apparently never-ending project to translate all the Bach Cantatas.
And in the spirit of diary-writing, there will be occasional entries in something looking like a standard blog.
There's nothing here likely to excite the professional musicologist, but hopefully some of my more naive enthusiasm will rub off on someone who passes by!
