I started BTH almost 10 years ago as a place for me to give advice to Early Music enthusiasts. That’s still the case today. It’s now also a place for me to discuss SCA related topics.
I am member of the Order of the Laurel in the Society of Creative Anachronism. My specialty is music. I am know in the society as Mistress Jadwiga Krzyzanowska. Most people call me Jadzia (pronouced YAH-juh)… or Monique.
Since 2012 I have run a Period Music focused event in the Middle Kingdom, St. Cecilia at the Tower.
I play recorders, keyboard, and Viola da Gamba. I also sing.
When I’m not doing Early Music stuff I teach piano, play RPGs, play board games, dance and read. I also like to fool around with computers. My husband, Aaron, is also a Music Laurel. We play a lot of music together.
Why “Blow Thy Horn”?
“Blow Thy Horn Hunter” is a madrigal composed by William Cornysh that is part of the Collegium’s repertoire. It’s a cute, upbeat song about hunting deer. I figured the name “Blow Thy Horn” was appropriate since I’m sounding my opinions.
