Yes, I am late again. I have a good excuse (don’t I always). The first week of October my son was ill. It was a stomach thing that knocked him of his feet. Then the 2nd week of October is Fall Break for my daughter (she attends a charter school). So of course we played around with her. I have also been thinking on my format. I tend to be all over the time line when it comes to composers and artists. At least with the composers I am going to start in one period and finish that period before I go on to another. As for the artist of the month I will still be jumping around to different time periods. This month the composer and Saint are the same person: Hildegard von Bingen. She is a fascinating figure in history! I suggest doing more of a study on her. Enjoy the post and have a blessed Harvest Season!
