Mary C. on Circus Palace

Thanks for the report on Sarasota and the wonderful Ringling Museum. It's one of my favorite places; there is so much to see. I first visited there in order to see a very old French harpsichord (not in playing condition, but its beautifully painted exterior is still visible as are some of the inner mechanisms). I study French Baroque music, and this harpsichord was built by the Jacquet family. The composer I study is Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre (early 18th century), and I'm sure if we knew more about her, she would have been a needleworker too. She was certainly a fine composer! Thanks for your report on Sarasota; it brought back fine memories of a place I'd love to visit again.
