  1. hello dr. carey!

    i wanted to tell you that we love your reviews and writing on music.
    it’s great to have a source of reviews that are thoughtful and absent
    of the typical mindless cheap association of many reviewers. your reviews
    are drenched with the fact that you listened and digested the work
    from a position of sound content. it’s refreshing!

    i invite you to download our newest ep, the gold ep, free at http://www.asaransom.net
    we would love to hear your thoughts!

    be well.

    may the residue of our lives be in such magnificent abundance that there is only letting go!

  2. Dear Fellow Music Blogger,

    My name is Colin Eatock, and I’m a music critic, composer and blogger based in Toronto, Canada. (My own blog may be found at http://www.colineatock.com/eatock-daily-blog.html.)

    About a month ago, I launched a new website called the Big List of Classical Music Blogs. (You’ll find it here: http://classical-music-blogs.weebly.com.) As the name suggests, it’s an extensive list of blogs and websites that offer news and opinion on classical music from around the world. When I launched the site, it had more than 300 links; today, there are more than 500. Yours is one of them.

    I’m writing to you with two requests, which I hope you’ll consider:

    1] If you have a blogroll on your own blog, I would be grateful if you would add a link to the BLCMB.

    2] I would welcome any suggestions you might have about any blogs to include in the BLCMB that I may have missed. (You may contact me by clicking here: http://classical-music-blogs.weebly.com/contact.html.) I’m particularly interested in adding to my list of composer blogs – but suggestions for all categories are most welcome!

    With best wishes for 2012,
    Colin Eatock

  3. Hi Professor Carey,
    I came across your blog and it’s pretty awesome. I don’t know if you remember me, but I was in your intro to theory class 2 years ago at westminster choir college. Anyways I was wondering if you wanted to check out my bands music. We call our selves “the hums”. Let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy it. cheers to music!
