Happy Birthday, John Milton! Here are excerpts from Mark Morris's delightful masterwork, *L'Allegro, il Penseroso, ed il Moderato* -- choreography for Handel's music as inspired (as Handel regularly was) by Milton's poetry. The full performance is available for streaming through March 26, 2018.

Those of us grounded in additional forms of ancient music could also sing "He's so fine, he's 409."


With all good wishes,

Subject: [Milton-L] John Milton's Birthday

Here in Bloomington California, at Bloomington High School, we celebrated, early, Milton's birthday with a reading of Lycidas-and a discussion of the importance and value of Milton and poetry. The students were enthusiastic and curious. Milton is not dead! He lives on and will for eons.
