Yesterday The Musicians In Ordinary did an 'informance' at U of Toronto's Scarborough Campus. The repertoire was songs and solos associated with Philip Sidney and the Earl of Essex. Talked some about who really wrote the 'Essex' poems (himself or his employees Henry Cuff and Francis Bacon?) and Sidney's Astrophel and Stella and The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia. Prof. Katie Larson was the point man on setting this up. Here are some pics:

Snacks at the reception afterwards.

But the real reason we wanted to go to Scarborough, St. Andrew's Scottish fish and chips shop on McCowan and Ellesmere. That's deep fried mealy pudding in the top left of my plate.
