Thanks to all of you who came out at noontime today to hear some French music just in advance of the Christmas season! If you didn’t get a copy of the “Fun Facts” I passed out, you can find them under “Musings” here — they’ll give you a new perspective on Messiaen and the other music I played.
It was a beautiful California day at noon, but it’s turned rainy where I live, so here’s a bit more on Messiaen, and a picture of him all bundled up for the weather.
Many thanks to all of you, all my readers, and to Sal Soria, a gracious and talented host at OLA. Joyeux Noel, indeed!
