  • Unfortunately, my plans have gone pear-shaped. Due to other responsibilities, including family issues, I will be taking much of Lilies week off work, but not attending the event. I hope there is indeed Noontime Singing this year, but I will not be there for it. -- In joy and service, Christian [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]

  • Good brothers and sisters, Herein, find many links to the sheet music we'll be using for the ball this coming weekend. 1st Set Petit Riens ~ Phaedria d'Aurillac ~ http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/~praetzel/phaedria/PETIT_V.pdf (You might note that the second line is very simple; that's a feature of all of Phaedria's arrangements; there's a part for the people who have just learned soprano...

  • Brothers and sisters, good day. The good people of the College of Bellewode would invite you to the HEralds, Scribes, and Dance Sympoium held just one week after Coronation. They further entreat you to see what sorts of classes and workshops are being offered during the day: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0At2b7C-TzbqgdGRFWEZXVWZlTS1jQWg3a0N2ZmJieXc&hl=en_US#gid=0 --In...

  • This past weekend, thee was a ball at Crown Tournament. There was also a ball at the 12th Night event in Ayerton (the Chicagoland barony in the Middle Kingdom). I was running the musicians there, and the fellow in charge of the ball did something I thought was novel and clever, and it turned out well. He had short sets: 5 dances each. But the sets were themed: English Country, 16th...

  • Greetings and felicitations from Christian d'Hiver, your servant. I just wanted to give folks a head's up: on the first Sunday of Lilies, at 1:00, there's be a stringed instruments (guitar / mandolin / vihuela di mano / lute) practicum workshop. We're going to play music. We might talk about the Renaissance guitar, or the cittern, or the lute, or their earlier precursors. We might...

  • Greetings and salutations to my brothers and sisters, from Christian d'Hiver, your servant. It is within a span of only a few weeks that our kingdom will come together once more to celebrate our achievements in the arts and sciences. And I thought this might be a good time to restate some of the lessons I've learned over the years, as both an entrant and judge. There are some folks...

  • On March 19th, the Barony of Cynnabar (Ann Arbor, Michigan) will be hosting the seventeenth annual "Terpsichore at the Tower" ball. If you like dance, and you're not going to be at, say, Gulf Wars, I cannot recommend this event too highly. The day is filled with three or four tracks of dance classes, and the ball is one of the finest in the SCA, filled with high spirits and...
