  2. I found an interesting article about the quip that Vivaldi didn’t compose 500 concertos, he just wrote the same concerto 500 times:

    1. “…all music carries social and cultural meaning, which changes over time.” Interesting arguments – thanks for the link, Steve. 🙂

  4. The portrait is magnificent, but the music reigns supreme. It was like a dance at first. Loved the dresses and spinet player whipping the sheets of music over! Thank you for my quiet time with the arts today! You a wonderful humanities teacher! Just, please, don’t make me write a prayer poem to a yam like my one in high school did! Ha!!
