Vicariously in Venice

Still finishing up the second Brookline sock (I have official permission to call it that). I intend to write up the pattern tonight, in case anyone's interested. It's a great way to use up any fingering weight yarn you might have on hand.
Apart from that, my treble viol and I are getting ready for a concert next week with the Melos Choir and Orchestra here in Kingston. Called "The Age of Change", the concert features music from the early 17th-century, when Renaissance polyphony was kicking around at the same time as early Baroque forms. For those of you wondering what the heck this pre-Bach music sounds like, click here to hear an exquisite performance by a Swedish ensemble of "Beatus Vir", by Claudio Monteverdi, which we'll be playing. If you were hanging out in Venice in the early 1600s, this was the music of the moment. Lovely, fresh stuff,

like our spring weather, which seems finally to have arrived.
