Medieval and Renaissance Interpretations

Today’s From the Library offers loud and qui­et, sacred and pro­fane: Euro­pean medieval and Renais­sance music. And an oppor­tu­ni­ty to use one of my favorite paint­ings: Albrecht Dür­er’s 1498 self-por­trait. “Das malt ich nach mein­er gestalt / Ich war sex und zwen­zig Jor alt/ Albrecht Dür­er” (I paint­ed this from my own appear­ance; I was twen­ty-six years old).

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s pro­gram was pro­duced by Otenth Pader­born.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Cale­don Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Sec­ond Life ref­er­ence libraries in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Cale­don Library Web site, or one of their loca­tions in-world.
