Highlights of English Musical Heritage

For music lovers who are not necessarily musicians, the library presents a series of sessions aiming at illustrating  the heritage of English Classical Music in its most specific and beautiful forms, mainly vocal music. Each session will focus on a composer, with a short presentation of the work and the composer, followed by the listening of selected pieces through  selected  videos, often with different interpretations. The point is to share comments and criticism with the group members.

This session will focus on Purcell’s “The Fairy Queen”.

These sessions are free and open to the public. For more information or to sign up please library volunteer Michel Cartillier by sending an email to this address.

Bookclub reads “The Dressmaker” | 21/12/2018 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Bookclub reads "The Dressmaker"

The December read for the bookclub is “The Dressmaker” by Beryl Bainbridge.

Wartime Liverpool is a place of ration books and jobs in munitions factories. Rita, living with her two aunts Nellie and Margo, is emotionally naive and withdrawn. When she meets Ira, a GI, at a neighbour’s party she falls in love as much with the idea of life as a GI bride as with the man himself. But Nellie and Margo are not so blind…
