St. Eligius

Having been charged with overseeing the Musician's Salon at St. Eligius I set my mind to providing a flexible framework without making myself too crazy. What I've ultimately decided to do is offer one course for "children's songs" at a scheduled time, and otherwise I'll have different activity packets that people can enjoy whenever.

I. Rounds (sing them!)
II. Selected Middle English Songs (How DO you pronounce that?)
III. Transcription from period source (Take this facsimile and see if you can convert it to modern notation)
IV. Make it Fit: Fit the period lyric to the period tune.

I'll also have a box of random music and books that folks can leaf through, sing through, or ignore as the mood takes them.

1) I am pre-regged for Pennsic.

2) I'm pondering participating in the Known World Choir this year. Not positive I want to deal with the rehearsal process, but I do miss singing the more complex stuff, and in harmony even. I'm waiting to see what the repertoire is before I commit. Or I just may be stealthy until the last minute.

3) I have an evil plan. An evil musical plan. Anyone wanna learn a little tune .... ? *cackle*

Which period (or close enough) songs do you think should be in the repertoire of the general populace?  I'm thinking something handy for campfire or waiting for feast sing-a-longs, or a jaunty tune for processing onto the battlefield.  Just curious.

This just reconnected me with my sense of humor (which has been sadly missing for the past few days).





And exactly my kind of geekiness!

EDIT: Evidently the kid is lipsynching. Whatevs. Still hilarious.

And set my toes to tapping, hips to swaying, and face to smiling.



Enjoy!

WHAT THE HECK?

There was "Planet of the Apes" version of "Rigoletto" in Munich a few years ago.  I know those crazy German directors like to have a konzept, but this is just nuts.
