- Scottish Psalter, 1615: York and Psalm 80
the god of merrie love, and Though
your strangeness frets my heart
Come, come let’s begin
- Morley, Sing
we and chant it,
ne suis pas si sot
We will be meeting as usual on Tuesdays at 7:45 PM at my place with
the following exceptions:
- Tuesday February 28 will not be a dropin rehearsal, as the
Morley group will pre-empt that time.
- On March 6, I will be working at the polls for the presidential primary, so someone
will have to open up if we want to meet that night.
- The meetings in March and April will concentrate on the Walk for Hunger program.
The meetings of April 24 and May 1 will be limited to (and
compulsory for) the
performers at the Walk for Hunger.
- On Sunday, May 6, we’ll be playing between 10am and 3pm.
You shouldn’t sign up unless you can be there at least between
noon and 3pm.
Next week, February 21, will probably be our last meeting for a
while where we will not be concentrating on the Walk for Hunger
program, and where we will have a new piece to sightread. So if
you have ideas about what you’d like to do, either for the new
piece or for old pieces that aren’t suitable for the Walk program,
let me know.
Walk for Hunger
We will be performing again this year, as we have every year
since 1999, at the Walk for Hunger, in a beautiful spot on the
Charles River, at the Cambridge-Watertown line. Unless you’re a
major rock star, it’s probably your only opportunity to perform
for tens of thousands of people.
Let me know if you want to play. If you do, let me know what
you would like to play.
I’m leaning towards an all-English program, with some
Morley, Weelkes, Holborne, Dowland and Byrd. Let me know your
likes and dislikes in that range. Also, if that would leave out
your favorite upbeat walking music, let me know about that.
