I like it! Very appealing.

Makes me think I should go watch some of the local Madrigal singing groups.

Oh, they're great! I really want to take dh to a Christmas madrigal dinner. Way back when (gosh, about 30 years ago!) we used to sing in them.

I think of you, your dh, Greg, Eddie. Then I think of tights and king-like robes. Fun.

Dymphna said...

Lol. My dh *refused* to wear tights, as you can probably imagine. I had to buy him the longest black socks I could find!

My kind of music.

Mine too!

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
