A day of chant practice with Susan Hellauer and Marsha Genensky of Anonymous 4, sponsored by San Francisco Renaissance Voices, on Saturday, April 18, at Seventh Avenue Presbyterian Church, SF. $60 for the day. The announcement says that "topics covered in the workshop include: singing from original notation; medieval Vespers hymns; Frankish tropes and sequences; Hungarian plainchant; Hildegard of Bingen; chant for St. James from the magnificent Codex Calixtinus; prayer tones; the Marian antiphons of Compline; and plenty of group singing to solidify what you learn." Um, wow.

Lisa, “...hath told,” or “...hath tolled”? Either could be correct though ‘tolled’ is the more commonly used.

My Riverside Shakespeare says "told," so I'm sticking with that.
