Tonight, music and poetry at the theatre.
First, songs by 16th to 18th century German, English, French, and Italian composers; sung by the twenty singers of the Hartkoor. The songs were by Hans Leo Hassler; Johann Nicolaus Krebs; Johann Hermann Schein; John Dowland; Toinot Arbeau; Pierre Attaignant; and Giovanni Giacomo Gastoldi.
Then, poetry by Daniel Bras. His first, long, poem was about birth. Then, two shorter poems about night and the sea.
Then, a column on neo-conservatism by yours truly.
Finally, bluegrass music by White Socks. Five voices. One woman (tambourine), four men. Percussion (accordion during the last song), one guitar, one harmonica. They have been together for some eight months. One of them had been in the audience when my punk band played in his home town.
