News of the week of May 17

Meeting report

We played:

  • Curt Hoffman’s Gilgamesh Cantata, based on the Jung Red Book
    and the Gilgamesh epic.
  • Lots of Holborne


As far as I know, we’ll be having dropin meetings on Tuesdays
as usual (7:45 PM, my place) until the week of BEMF (June 14), when we will not be

Plans for next week

We didn’t get far enough to make a recording last night in 45
minutes, so we will have another session on the Gilgamesh
Cantata. Let me know if you’re interested in coming and I can send you
your part, and a pointer to the recording of what we did last

We still have lots of Holborne we haven’t played yet, so we
will be doing some of that, too.

Other events

On Saturday, May 21, the John Tyson student recital will happen
at 2 PM in Lindsay Chapel, First
Church of Cambridge,
, 11 Garden St. I’m going to be
playing ricercadas by Diego
, accompanied by internationally reknowned clavichord
player Judith
on Baby.

Several people have recommended the Convivium Musicum concert,
which will be this Saturday, May 21, at 8 PM at the Cambridge
Friends Meeting House,
or on Sunday in Salem.


I will again be blogging from the Boston Early Music Festival.
Last time, one of the most popular posts
was one I did before the festival, listing concert dates and
times of the fringe events our friends were playing in.

So please send me information about any event you think the
people on this list should know about. It’s a fair amount of
work putting together a post like this, so it helps me if you
send a brief description including all of who, what, when,
where, why, and links to anywhere more information is available,
such as the website of the group, or directions to the venu.
