Dear Karin,

Thank you very much for your message and for your interest in my work. I am glad that you found my presentation interesting.

I would like to send you a CD of my group where many of these ideas are presented in music. Could you please send me your address?
Best Regards

Dear Karin, 

there's one recent book concerning Dominican liturgy & chant:

"Aux origines de la liturgie dominicaine"


P.S. I'm also interested in Dominican chant (especially repertoire of Divine Office), since I'm writing my PhD thesis on that topic (with an emphasis on the sources from Croatia/Dalmatia).

Salut Karin !


je suis content d'avoir de tes nouvelles, depuis le temps...

J'habite toujours à Bâle, oui. Ce n'est pas trop mal pour la musique médiévale ;-)

à bientôt j'espère.

Hi Karen,

Here's a little chapel where my ladies' group performed. The stone seemed to sing along.

Hope you are enjoying your work and concerts.

Will you be coming to the south of France??? Would love to see you.

Hey Karin: nice to hear from you. Life is busy on this end - wonderful projects.

Hope it is the same for you. xxx Anne.

Cher Frédéric, Merci pour ton message! Je suis désolée de répondre si tard mais je suis debordée de travail en ce moment. J'aimerais continuer discuter (et en même temps pratisuer mon francais...) sur cette adresse: À+!

Chère Karin,
merci de ton message. Je viens d'écouter sur le site de ton ensemble quelques extraits musicaux. Bravo pour tout ce travail! Et félicitations pour la thèse! Je viens également de faire paraître sur le site de mon ensemble Vox in Rama quelques extraits dans la rubrique nos enregistrements, avec notamment un versus aquitain que j'ai édité dans mon mémoire de master pro. Je prépare maintenant une thèse à l'ÉPHÉ sur la rhétorique liturgique au Moyen âge. Je serais très heureux de pouvoir consulter tes travaux et d'échanger des à nouveau idées avec toi. N'hésites pas à me contacter si tu passes en France. Pourrais - tu m'envoyer ton adresse mail personnelle? Bien à toi.

Hoi Karin. Een tijdje geleden stuurde ik je onderstaand bericht via het email-adres dat ik in Dobogókõ van je kreeg, maar misschien lees je dat niet zo vaak. Succes met je verdediging! Groet, Geert

Hoi Karin,

Omdat ik de meerwaarde van musicologie médiévale niet begrijp schrijf ik liever naar een gewoon email-adres (dat van de lijst die in Dobogókõ werd uitgedeeld) dat scheelt een hoop geklik.

Onze beschermheilige, Tine van Lingen, heeft in 2002 in feite mijn ensemble in het leven geroepen. In Mölndal is zich op gevorderde leeftijd verder aan het bekwamen in de traditionele schilderkunst. Een driejarige voltijdsopleiding. In feite is het maar de vraag of ze dat financieel kan waarmaken. Maar ze dacht: nu of nooit, heeft haar baan opgezegd en is in april begonnen.

Ik zag dat Ulrike Heider bij Rebecca Stewart studeerde en dacht al dat jij er vast meer van zou weten. Waarom ben jij niet gebleven? Tine had het erover dat wij daar (Hagakyrkan) ook eens moesten komen zingen.

Wat betreft US. Ik schrijf paperproposals voor Kalamazoo en Columbia University. Als ze geaccepteerd worden ga ik daar komend jaar naartoe om papers te presenteren; in mei en juni. Dat lijkt me wel leuk. Tussendoor moet ik wel weer in Nederland zijn voor een interessant concert, maar dat moet dan maar.

Groet, Geert
