I played through the latest printout of my Psalm arrangement. I thought I had fixed every glitch, but I found one more suspect measure where I don't think I entered the notes correctly. *sigh* Music publishing software is wonderful, but every mark on the page is an opportunity to screw up.

It reminds me of what one of the copy editors of the last UM Hymnal told me. I had said there was a typo on a particular hymn, and she replied that every member of the Committee looked at every mark on every page and could find no errors. And then they printed it, and the letters and e-mails began from helpful or critical users.

Well, only God is perfect.
