> Nice! WHat is your period of musical interest?Better to say, what isn't? My tastes are extremely
eclectic. I've been singing with a choir that does
mostly late period polyphony (we have singers of
varying skill levels and if you aren't used to the
positively crunchy harmonies in earlier pieces, it's
more difficult to absorb). I've done some Elizabethan
songs by Dowland, and am currently working on trying
to learn "Ja Nus Hon Pris" which is attributed to
Richard Coeur de Lion, so I'm all over the map.
Mundanely my music education consists of three years
of piano lessons as a child so I'm self taught on
whistle and psaltery and am learning as I go.

Surely there is someone in the cradle of SCA
civilization who does period music. Nonetheless, I am
frantically copying sheet music before I leave. If
Golden Rivers doesn't yet have a choir I may have to
