    Well, you certainly know how to make a body feel old!! THIRTY-TWO YEARS??? Seeing as how my kids were in the first five, I guess that makes me just a shade over the hill.

    Myself aside, let me say this: I have attended a number of Madrigal Dinners, mostly staged by college or university music departments. NONE can hold a candle to this one. The caliber of music, the setting . . . whatever it is, it is magical.
