Friends and the Arts:

The Fellowship of Quakers in the Arts sponsors art shows and discussions about the role of the arts.

Quakers and Music is one of the most comprehensive lists of Quaker musicians, maintained by Peter Blood. Peter and his wife Annie Patterson are authors of the wildly-popular Rise Up Singing songbook.

Music and Quakerism is a fabulous overview of Quaker attitudes toward music put together by the Haverford College Libraries.

Good morning from Western Australia.

The notion of poetry being 'a form of Quaker plain speaking' speaks strongly to me.  Re the recent review here of BBC radio doco  'Listen to them breathing' - I just missed the online deadline to listen again - if anyone saved/recorded it and could share it I'd be grateful.

Along the same lines - having read the review I now can't wait for a collected UA Fanthorpe to arrive by mail and would like to read again her poem 'Friends Meeting House, Frenchay'. At once, or sooner! Can't find online - does anyone have a link or a copy they could share?

Best, Virginia
