3. EU PROJECT

I like to introduce our EU-project to you as this might be of interest for the members
of the lute society. The MIMO project is a cooperation of 11 institutions respectively
Musical instrument museums holding historical as well as ethnographic collections.
Our aim is to present our collections online in Septmeber 2011 on the portal of
www.europeana.eu. This service will be free. We are working out a standard of photos as
well as thesaurus and multilingual database (6 languages). Of course, this database will
offer various search functions, such as instrument maker's name, ethnicity or region of origin.
Please kindly let me know, wether you like to send an invitiation via your mailing list, we
than would like to send to you our project flyer PDF as well as an invitation to subscribe the
MIMO newletter. This subscription/registration on the MIMO website (see link below) will enable the subscribers to participate in an online evaluation of our project's database content, which will take place in the coming weeks. For researchers as well as instrument makers, this is a chance to improve the MIMO database according to the users' need.
Kindly let me also know about other associations in UK, which might be interested, we like to
Offer this chance to as many experts as possible.

Best wishes for the coming New Year 2011

6. CAMBRIDGE WORKSHOP 12th FEB

A reminder about our next workshop! Philip Cave and Sally Dunkley, both founder-members of The Tallis Scholars, will be co-directing a day of music by Philippe Rogier, a contemporary of Victoria who would have been much better-known had more of his output survived. His music is hugely engaging and rich, and this is a rare opportunity to learn about it with some leading experts.

The workshop will work on some music a cappella, and other pieces with cornetts, sackbuts etc. We still have space for more singers in all parts except soprano, and for a couple of bass viols, theorbo and more brass players. Please apply as soon as possible to reserve your place. Email us for a booking form.

The workshop is on Saturday 12th February, in the Chapel of Girton College, Cambridge, where there is plenty of parking space. You might like to note that Philip Cave's professional group, Magnificat, will be performing music by Rogier with His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts the following Saturday, 19th February, in Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge (details at
http://www.cambridgeearlymusic.org/).

With good wishes for 2011,

Selene Mills Membership Secretary, Eastern Early Music Forum 5 Tunwell's Lane, Great Shelford, Cambridge CB22 5LJ 01223 847330 info@cambridgeearlymusic.org
