Music for the January session

The January 14th session will be a rehearsal for our February 11th concert (musical entertainment for the book sale and community outreach). It will be during the TVUUC book sale at our regular meeting time, 10-12.

We rehearsed the music we will play at the November meeting. If you were there you should have the music. Here are the pieces we plan to play:

Hornpipe (Hole in the Wall) (Purcell

Fata la parte (Juan del Encina)

Toccata (Monteverdi)

Courante (Praetorious.. it says "incerti")

La Battaille (Susato)

Now, O Now I needs must part (Dowland)

Gavotte (Praetorius-Caroubel) we did not practice this one in Nov. but it will be included

And a shaped note piece which will be handed out on Saturday.

I am not planning to bring extra copies of the music. If you were not at the November rehearsal and need music please let me know by Thursday morning.

This should be a good opportunity for us to play for a "ready made" audience and also to encourage new folks to join us. Hope to see all of you on Saturday!
