This is a follow-up to my recent tour of Blogville. For those of you who haven't been checking The Rest Is Noise almost daily to see if Alex Ross has resumed blogging yet (or who don't use Bloglines yet), the entire Music neighborhood of Blogville is breathing a sigh of relief. Thank goodness, once you have the blogging bug, it's pretty hard to give it up. His recent post (it's so good to be able to say that about The Rest Is Noise, isn't it?) on Lorraine Hunt Lieberson withdrawing from the upcoming premiere of Doctor Atomic has a nifty image. I was struck more, however, by the title of the post, Batter My Heart, which comes from the first line of one of my favorite Holy Sonnets by John Donne. He also has posted lovely pictures from his trip to Austria.
Are tithing requirements like a tax?
