October Composer, Artist, and Saint

16 Oct

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!
