Made up a teaching flyer

I’ve been listed as a recorder teacher on the Boston Recorder Society teachers’ list for some time, and I’ve gotten one student that way. It’s being a pleasant way to make a little extra money, and I’m learning at least as much as she is, so I’ve decided to see if I can get a couple more students. So I’ve made up a flyer that I will put up on some bulletin boards. If you know anyone in Cambridge who wants recorder lessons, send them my way.

Plans for the July 6 meeting


The next meeting of the Cantabile Renaissance Band will take place on Thursday, July 6, at 7:45 PM at my place.

Note the unusual day of the week. We decided it was easier to deal with that than with the unusual traffic patterns here on July 4, or with an unusual meeting location (which would still have required some of us to deal with the traffic patterns).

This meeting, and the following one on July 11, will have the first section devoted to rehearsing the Ingalls program for July 22. Those who are performing on that program should make an effort to arrive on time. The meeting on July 18 will be entirely devoted to the Ingalls program, and will be limited to those performing on July 22.

Last meeting

We played:

  • Ingalls Group:
    • Millennium
    • Friendship

    • Pavan in E minor
  • Ravenscroft, Joan come kisse me now
  • Isaac, Innsbruck, two settings
  • Byrd, Lord in thy rage rebuke me not
  • Susato, Ronde I

Report on April 18 meeting

Report on April 18 meeting

[cantabile] Report on April 18 meeting

It was a pity this one happened while we were preparing for a gig.
The power was off for over half the rehearsal time, and it would
have been fun to just do stuff we could do without music and
forget about trying to read dots on paper, or to see if we could
do the Dowland facsimiles around a table with candles. But we
had to light candles and stick to our planned music.

We played:

  • Millennium
  • All in a Garden Green
  • Can she excuse my wrongs
  • O sweet wood
  • His Golden Locks
  • Now is the month of Maying


The next two meetings are limited to and compulsory for the people
playing the Walk for Hunger. Our regular drop-in meetings
resume on Tuesday, May 9.

If you are coming to the meetings, please arrive on time and with
your music in order. We’re attempting to rehearse and hour of
music in a two and a quarter hour of rehearsal time. If it were
all solid and only needed running through, this would still need
as much rehearsal time as we could get. Since some of it is
unfamiliar to everyone, and some of it Paul hasn’t seen at all,
we really need everyone to be there for the whole time.

Last year, I got tired of repeating the whole playlist and part
assignments in the blog
every time we made a minor change. So this year I’m using a
non-linear blogging software called tiddlywiki. The tiddleywiki
for this gig is here.
I’ll be mailing a view of it to the participants for their
review soon.
