Musical Frank

A totally lazy day so Frank had a look at the choir's anthem for the service on 31st October. The words are printed on the blog: http://therevandadog.blogspot.com/2010/10/2010365280-frank-reflects.html
I'm happy to hear Frank has some musical inclinations. Helps pass the time.

Finally, you got your day off. Maybe you can make Frank the lead singer after he studied the anthem for such a long time.

He is a singer too...such a talent. How long is Frank staying?

Frank is multi-talented! I'd imagine him to be a tenor...but you never can tell. Will he be staying until the 31st? Cute shot!

Sheet music is so beautiful as an image... I wonder who "invented" it first? I know that an obtuse question, but as I look at this it just comes to mind...
So glad Frank is enjoying the company of you and all your friends here; his family will be delighted to see all he's done and the comments he's engendered.

@mama yes, he tried the alto line (silly boy) but ended up a tenor! I think I'll move him on next Thursday - he should be able to meet the Lord Mayor that day which would be a good ending! And maybe I need to get back to "normal" pictures....

@Weezilou Yes, Frank's owner is enjoying his antics. As to sheet music ... I don't know but imagine it was the way music was originally. I love it when the new anthems arrive and we get the pristine sheets that soon become covered with pencil marks! Frank certainly helps with the photographs when you hit a "thin" time!

Thanks for the music history...fascinating! I love music, but never learned to read it, so I was unfamiliar with much of that information and the many terms I'd never heard before! Thanks for the crash course!

Frank must be extremely talented if he sang that anthem while reading the music upside down! Re sheet music: pencil marks personalise it. I have music that my grandparents sang from nearly 100 years ago and it gives me a thrill to see their notes written on the manuscript. They also had the habit of writing their name and the date on the front so it has real provenance.

@cmt2812 I know.... life with a talented skunk is full of surprises!! Yes, we put name and date on the music as well.... means that the librarian can give each member his/her own music when an anthem is revisited.

Very beautiful song! I think Frank is learning so much!
