And some more misc.

Beltane                                    Waning Planting Moon

A fine tribute to Michele Yates.  Merritt did a tour of various galleries and played music appropriate to the era.  Plain chant in the medieval and renaissance gallery, madrigals and recorder music in the Tudor Room, a movement from a Mozart concerto next to Ganymede and the Eagle, romantic music by Mendelssohn  in the large gallery with Theseus and the Centaur, Delacroix’s Fanatics of Tangiers and Silenus, ending with Debussy in the impressionist gallery.

Merritt is a musicologist by profession, now retired, and has a keen appreciation for the interplay between the musical and visual arts.

Today’s a bit fragmented in that I took my nap at 11:00 am.  Now I’m going to go work on some more Ovid.
