Lute Society Meeting 24th November 2007

(Thanks to Ray Butcher)

Don't forget the next Lute Society meeting will take place on Saturday 24th November, at the Swedenborg Hall, at 20-21 Bloomsbury Way, London, near Holborn tube.

The day will have an 18th century theme.

Miguel Serdoura won't be able to make it for his mini-recital; very kindly Arngeir Hauksson has offered to play, at short notice - prepare for a surprise!

The new Lute Society anthology of lute poems will be on sale, and volume two of Jon Banks's mediaeval trios, also God willing, some Dutch Lute Society facsimiles. Brian Jordan will be there, with his selection of music and books. No need to book - just turn up!
