Also, please to vote the regular music fun challenge diary to the front page so I can find it again: here.

Anyway. A while back called a Classical Music Fun Challenge. The submission deadline is June 13, with details given at the above link.

So far we have two submissions. I'm happy to announce that 256 has upped the file size limit, so you can do longer pieces if you'd like.

Since I was part of a choir concert this past weekend, I snipped one piece out of the massive, 2-hour long, MP3 file the conductor snagged with a gizzy attached to her iPod (and to her music stand). Go have a listen. This is an elegy composed by William Byrd on the occasion of the death of his friend, mentor, and business partner (they had a monopoly on music publishing in England) in 1585, performed live by Coro Stella Maris this past weekend.

We also have an entry from lb008d, Aztec Ceremonies, for contrabassoon and piano. Yummy stuff.

We're off to NCia for a wedding this weekend, described with duly amused horror elsewhere. Today, it's hotter here than there. I rather hope it stays that way. Last May we were there for a wedding (on the beach) on a day when it was about 95 in the shade (and we were in the sun).

Poor puppy's off to "camp" again shortly. He seems to like it there OK, but he's soooooo ready to come home again at the end.

Maybe I can catch up a bit on reading and writing and stuff. And, one hopes, come back to work refreshed and ready to go at it again.

Anyway, I'm out.

Nice!!!! by TPD (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri May 11, 2007 at 01:35:02 AM EST
I plan to enter both if I can find the time to squeeze in a regular MFC entry. Not going to be easy what with having to relearn the guitar (to play something so far removed from my normal 2 fingered power chord based repertoire).

But the current MFC is too good an idea to ignore.

why sit, when you can sit and swivel with The Ab-SwivellerTM
