    I really like your website. John Tyson, who comes to DC to teach, first told me about it. To facilitate searching, it would be helpful to search not only by composers but also by the number of players the piece is for. For example, I belong to a trio and would like to have a listing of everything in your database that is for three players. (Actually, I looked through each composer for 3-part pieces.)

    THank you for considering this suggestion.

    Hi Laura,

    You saw us at NEFFA last week. We were the loud medieval band, Unfortunately, the program literature didn’t have our name in it! It just had the name of our program “Raucus Renaissance”. The band’s name is Diab olis In Musica.

    We had a blast, an d want to thank you and everyone else for being so responsive. Hope to see you next year, a nd hopefully, we’ll have learned new songs by then. We’ve been playing the same dozen or so songs for several years at shows, and the preparations for a season takes up more time than we have to work on new material.

    Let me know how you enjoyed our show!

    The family lived so frugally that his mother, Dora, made him shirts out of scraps of fabric. Once she made herself a skirt out of the back of the suit that her younger brother was buried in. She didn’t want
    the material to go to waste.
    — Michael Kimmelman, the NY Times obituary of Robert Rauschenberg
