Burning the rack to seal pipe from moisture

POSTPONED TO MARCH 23rd. 17th-Century Music from the Spanish Netherlands at Midday : Mar 16

 17th-century Iberian organ music might seem far distant, both geographically and aesthetically, from Netherlandish and North German music of the same period. And in many ways the shifting colors, impassioned rhetoric and strange bursts of dance rhythms in the music of Pablo Bruna and Francisco Correa de Arauxo seem to evoke a world utterly different to that of the great Amsterdam organist Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck and his pupils. Yet Annette Richards's Midday Music recital on March 16th will trace some of the paths that linked these two realms.
