Fun at music
- Last night, our music group held practice. We started work on Sumer Is
Icumen In. I had brought a version of it to practice. Only one member
of our group had sung it before. The version she had used was slightly
different. I also brought a copy of the manuscript I found on line.
We compared the manuscript to my version, and delared my version more
accurate. I didn't bring enough copies of my version for everyone, so
she sang it from the manuscript!
This was particularly fun because our group has lately been discussing
how authentic we want to be. There was much discussion about how hard
it would be to figure out music ourselves and that we really must soley
rely on others to translate it into notation we can work with. While
that is still true in part, last night we proved that we CAN do it and
we can have FUN doing it. WooHoo!
