this is a gorgeous shot, Ginnie. i like the red shades on the mural.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
Nicely composed ( no pun intended ) Ginnie, it works very well.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Great pun, though not intended, Frank. Thank you.
Isn't that beautiful, Ginnie! You did a wonderful job on the comp and the processing!
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Elizabeth. Thank you.

what an unusual piece of sheet music. i'm guessing the musician wrote it out themselves. makes for an intriguing image.
Ginnie Hart: I'd love to know how old it is, Sherri. Because I sang in choral groups for much of my life, I'm always intrigued by sheet music like this. Thanks.
Jolie composition avec cette partition.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine.

I'm all for joyful sounds Ginnie.

Anything to take our minds off certain politicians..
Ginnie Hart: OMG, yes, Chris!

This is the old notation for music, devised by monks, which we use to sing an Introit at mass Ginnie. This piece is for All Souls’ Day.
Ginnie Hart: Of course you would know all of that, Chad. I knew you would. smile

Anyone who can read such music and then turn it in to beautiful sound (well - hopefully!) has my admiration. It's the work of the Devil to me smile
Ginnie Hart: Leave that to Chad, Alan, but he would definitely say it is NOT the work of the Devil. HA!
Quand art et musque s'associe , c'est merveilleux !Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes it is, Claudine! Merci.

A wonderful composition, Ginnie and I love this scene. The fresco in the back and the large music book. Once I heard a guide say the reason that those books are so large is, they often had only one copy and the quire could see the music from afar.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Astrid. What your guide said makes sense, I guess?!
Recoucou , je viens te repondre ici ...le piano bar est en fait un bar dans lequel l'ambiance musicale est assurée par un piano , c'est très ancien ..peu importe le piano
Ginnie Hart: Ahhhh. Merci, Claudine.
Wat een mooi geheel, hier word je blij van.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Marjolein, isn't it! Bedankt.

I would like to sing some words for my dear brother "Requiem eternam dona ... et lux perpetua luceat ..."I read Chad's comment, too.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Philine!
Hi Ginnie
Beautiful book by Gregorian. Did you know that I have learned and taught this form of music for about ten years. The square notes are called "Neumes" and the staff has only 4 lines, unlike those of classical notes, which have 5 lines.
Superb photo and subject
Ginnie Hart: Oh, WOW, Marie. No, I did not know this!!! You are a woman of many talents!
Join in the second chorus...I'm only singing one.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'll be glad to join in, Bill. smile
looks like a connect the dots game smile neat picture tho... amazing the things you run across!
Ginnie Hart: Connect the dots, indeed, Elaine. That's kinda what you have to do when you sing from such a sheet of music. smile Thanks.
Fine composition, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom!
This is a gorgeous shot,nice day to you Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

A beautiful still life with the sheet music and colorful murals!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven.
What a great find. As an ex chorister, like yourself I would be intruiged by this, it is written in Plainsong, as no doubt you know, but only 4 lines to the Stave and no 'tails up' or 'tails down'. I'm half tempted to try and sing it, Maureen's going out soon, so I can make all the noise I want smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Go at it and have some fun, Brian. Chad also knows all about this. smile
Now that was just waiting for a photographer. Good eye!
Ginnie Hart: Awww, thank you, Mary.

greetings
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy. Growing up with a musical mom makes we really enjoy such scenes.
A song of praise........nicely composed, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. We need songs of praise these days, don't we!

So interesting to see how they used to write music.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Bonnie. So totally intriguing to me.
Gutted! I thought you were going to show us your ME GA holiday photos. wink

Hey but mama told me "patience is a virtue".

Forget Italian, let's hymn in English now.
Ginnie Hart: I know, I know, LC. I gave myself some slack after coming back to so many things to get done. BUT, you'll be happy for the next few weeks, I hope. smile

Jolie prise
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
I love how you have composed this! I am having a hard time getting to your blog. the link from my blog never works, gives me an error message.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for your comment, Ruthie. I went to my link and see that when you click on it, it does NOT include the https:// before the www, even though it is in my link when I make the comment. When you click on it again, try adding the https:// and see if it then works. I had to try it several times...even had to find it on the Google page... before it worked. Not sure why!
