Technology meets tradition

Paths converge in this photo which was taken yesterday afternoon. In the background is Mont Ventoux, celebrated by Petrarch and Liszt. In the middle distance is the Abbaye Notre Dame de l'Annonciation, whose nuns recorded the CD of Gregorian chant which sparked 'A musicians is also a person'. And in the foreground is composer and technology maven Jeff Harrington who featured in 'Is classical music obsessed by existential angst?' and a linked podcast. My thanks go to Father Edmond of L'Abbaye Sainte-Madeleine at Le Barroux who so generously welcomed us yesterday. By chance Igor Kirkwood was recording a second CD of chant by the monks at Le Barroux for Jade while we were visiting. I have praised their first disc here several several times; a sample can be heard in the podcast linked from 'Talking of Lady Gaga', which also includes music by Jonathan Harvey and Lady G herself.
