I have been telling you that Eck en Wiel is on the Lek. My neighbor hosts Han and Ineke corrected me. It is the Neder (Lower) Rijn (Rhine).  The Rhine coming from Switserland becomes the Lower Rhine near Arnhem and then the Lek at Wijk bij Duurstede, which is just about 10 k.m. to the west of Eck en Wiel.

I drove to Amsterdam for choir practice. We are going through it with lightning speed. We’ll be singing at next week’s Ash Wednesday service the Missa in Honorem S. Ambrosii of Jan Nieland. Last night I practiced it for the very first time. We’ll have a short rehearsal before the Wednesday service. Thank God I’m supported on all sides by excellent tenors. It is a beautiful piece.

We had an unusual multicolored sunrise sky this morning.
