Comment on Which Came First, the Music or the Words? by Trudy https://saraleeetter.com/blog1/?p=466#comment-809 Sat, 03 Sep 2016 04:17:24 +0000 http://saraleeetter.com/blog1/?p=466#comment-809 I didn’t know Sullivan and Tennyson were friends!
It’s not surprising Sullivan would be so precise about rhythm. A master at any craft becomes a master of details.
If I were a composer, I’d likely create the music first and then fit the words to the mood of the piece created.
I whistle improvised Bach-like pieces to myself all the time. Not sure there’d be lyrics to that!

Comment on Food, Glorious Food! by Saralee Etter https://saraleeetter.com/blog1/?p=327#comment-287 Fri, 29 Apr 2016 22:31:31 +0000 http://saraleeetter.com/blog1/?p=327#comment-287 I’m glad you liked it, Trudy! Yes, I believe that the pickles and condiments and so on were preserved in glass jars and probably ceramic crocks — it seems reasonable to me that Victorians (and even earlier cooks) would have known a variety of food preservation techniques, including water-bath canning. They might have used rubber rings as seals on the jars.
