TudorCast #5 - October 2006

Song from La Primavera's “English Renaissance Music” at

Can she excuse my wrongs with Virtue's cloak?
Shall I call her good when she proves unkind?
Are those clear fires which vanish into smoke?
Must I praise the leaves where no fruit I find?

No no: where shadows do for bodies stand,
Thou may'st be abus'd if thy sight be dim.
Cold love is like to words written on sand,
Or to bubbles which on the water swim.

Wilt thou be thus abused still,
Seeing that she will right thee never?
If thou canst not o'ercome her will
The love will be thus fruitless ever.

Was I so base, that I might not aspire
Unto those high joys which she holds from me?
As they are high , so high is my desire:
If she this deny, what can granted be?

If she will yeld to that which reason is,
It is Reason's will that Love should be just.
Dear make me happy still be granting this,
Or cut off delays if that die I must.

Better a thousand times to die,
Than for to live thus still tormented:
Dear, but remember it was I
Who for thy sake did die contended

iTunes not showing episodes

Well, I'm not sure what's going on, but the episodes and reviews for the podcast aren't showing up in iTunes right now. I'll investigate and see if something is goofed up. I haven't changed anything and the feed seems to be okay, so it might be something on Apple's end.

The next new episode should be ready next week, so hopefully I'll get it fixed before then!

UPDATE: Seems to be working now. I have no idea what happened to break it or to fix it, but the eps are listed and reviews are back. Strange!
