Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

That's a beautiful drawing, Beth! And all the more so because it's not a slavish copy but introduces your own vision. I think the old Maestro would have approved.

I love Purcell. So wish I could be there to hear you.

Thanks, Natalie. I was hoping you would see it and comment, because I was thinking of you as I worked on it.

Me too. Listen sometime on the radio, Hattie! Though it wouldn't be a very convenient time for you, I guess...
