Thanks for reminding us (and hopefully all our adjudicators!) that there is
no one correct interpretation of a piece of music, and that (up to a point)
all of our readings of a score are valid.  At this stage of the rehearsal
process its so easy to become bogged down in minutiae and lose sight of the
bigger vision.
