Back in May of this year, I had the good fortune to be able to attend the world premiere performance of John Adams’ new oratorio, The Gospel According to the Other Mary. In addition to posting a review of that concert, I posted some pre-concert musings on the new work’s title and the identity of the “Other Mary” (read my thoughts at the time HERE).
So it was with some curiosity that I noticed a small link on the “Entertainment” section of yesterday’s Los Angeles Times website titled, “The elusive ‘Other Mary’ .” I clicked on it and, lo and behold, found that not only had Reed Johnson and the Times taken up the same issue I raised a few months ago and ran with it, they referred to “a lively discussion among a handful of religious scholars and bloggers” — with a live web link on “and bloggers” which pointed to my pre-concert post (see screen shot below).
Mind you, they mentioned neither me nor All is Yar by name (I said they gave the blog a little love, not a whole lotta love).
Still, I feel honored to have represented the entire blogosphere on this one issue.
