Actually, I was quoting David, who lives in Calafia - but it is nice to hear
that there are other groups in Caid involved with early music.   When I
left, there were madrigal groups, but not much else.

So, both the players and the vocalists are called Phoenix players?    Are
they playing for dances after feast??  That would be way cool.   The last
time I danced to live musicians in Caid was when Jubilitories were still
playing on a semi-regular basis - that would have been in the early 90's, I
I left Caid in 96, came back for summer of 97, and haven't been back since -
although my son keeps on asking me about trying to make it to Potrero....

I miss Collegium!!   Unfortunately, Meridies is sooo land large that I
haven't made it to a single RUM since moving here.   (RUM - Royal University
of Meridies)

Well, give my regards to Caid - and if you know Samrah of the Spices and
Master Oso - tell them that I've learned how to felt Mongolian rugs....
