Jolly Company

Here by popular demand! Abigail Quandt recently gave a presentation about conserving her museum's 14th century "lace book." It created quite a buzz amongst her dancer friends, so we have invited her to tell us more about her world-renown conservation work as she gives us a peek at her 12th century Italian St. Francis Missal project.

  • Recording of Jenny Beer's interview with Abigail is coming soon!
  • Here's the digitized St. Francis Missal, page by page
  • If you enjoyed this and/or the lace book presentation,please consider donating to the Walters museum to support this manuscript work
  • Choice Morsels

    Ed Leypoldt shared an Irish song for St. Patrick's Day.

    Closing Song

    Cecily Mills sang "Country Life":
    (chorus)
    I like to rise when the sun she rises
    Early in the morning
    And I like to hear them small birds singing
    Merrily upon the laylum
    And hurrah for the life of a country boy
    And to ramble in the new mown hay
