Sunday Short Takes

Just a couple of things, mostly related to stuff I posted in the Upcoming Books, Exhibitions, and Events for October 2017 last weekend:

* Miranda Kaufmann has a website related to her new book Black Tudors, including brief bios of Ten Black Tudors who are featured in the book, and details on her book tour throughout England.

* The Mary Rose lit up my news alerts last week – first with stories saying that it is in danger of collapse and then more of a clarification saying that it wasn’t in danger of collapse, but that it is in need of a new support system. Next week is the 35th anniversary of the raising of the ship and there are still tickets available for the Anniversary Lectures next weekend.

* And finally, I received an email that the score to the movie Lady Jane has been released. I haven’t seen the movie in a while, but I remember that it a lovely score. One thing that a lot of people might not know about me is that I’m a life-long film score buff and it’s always great to see old scores released even many, many years after the movie came out. You can learn more about this release and listen to sample tracks here. Links to purchase through my Amazon affiliates below:
