I think I've posted here that I've been photographing a six-volume set of
partbooks containing 250+ period motets, with the usual possibility of
sending them out on DVD's to whoever wanted 'em?
The set's been done, finally. Unfortunately, since it's roughly 10 gigabytes,
which means 3 DVD's worth, I am forced to admit that I'll have to charge
for them (and I really, really hate that).....Fortunately, I'm also making
available all the other digitized books done over the last five years.
And, unfortunately, charging for all of them, too. And doubly
unfortunately, the best way for me to do this is through the bookstore.
.....well, the bookstore's blog, actually, if you want to get technical.
Go to www.potboilerpress.com, and click on the button in the upper
right-hand corner, the one marked "blog"; there should be four or
five posts in the blog that concern what's available and how much
it'll cost, and how to contact me in the guise of the store's owner to
If anyone wants to shout at me for posting this crass commercial
announcement, do so in private: I had the most interesting appointment
today with a rheumatologist who believed firmly in the proposition that
the best way to find out how much pain I can be in is to push my joints
well past the pain point. I am not in a good mood.
But I'll be in a much more cheerful mood once people start ordering
the disks, I promise.
And, yes, please copy this to whomever you think would like the disks
- SCA folk, professional musicians, liturgical researchers, C&I folk,
regular herbal groups, whomever.
(Before I forget, the motet volumes are Giovanelli, Novi [atque catholici]
thesauri musici. Liber Primus [-Quintus]...., 1568, in the Music
section, for those what want just that.)
Alban, wondering what he's getting himself into again
