A wedding music mystery was recently solved here at the wedding music project corporate production headquarters, that is to say at my house and recording studio.
Early in 2010 I had borrowed some wedding music books from Amy and Patrick Fata, good friends for whom I’ve produced 3 albums over the years.
After using the books, it was some time later that I contacted them about something unrelated, and they asked if I could return the music books. I let them know that I had sent Mary to their house a number of months previous to return them – we both remembered clearly that we had taken them back. Mary even remembered that they and their daughter were sick at the time, so she just handed them in the door to them.
They protested (in a friendly way mind you) that they were sure we had not returned them, but that it was not a problem and that they had let me borrow them knowing they were releasing them into the black hole that is ZooWest recording studio.
Fast forward: I walked into my studio recently, saw the wedding music in question laying on a surface, and broke out laughing. How in the world they could just suddenly appear after all that time?
So I did the only logical thing – I called Patrick to let him know that our house had been broken into over the weekend (dragging it out a bit for good effect) and that fortunately we didn’t seem to be missing anything, but that oddly, whoever had broken into the house had left some wedding music books in my studio.
