Jacob B Obit: Jack Langstaff, father of Revels (1920-2005) (29) RE: Obit: Jack Langstaff, father of Revels (Dec 05) 13 Dec 05

For those who have never seen Revels: The way the chorus was used as a bridge between the performers and the audience, and Jack's outgoing personality, blurred the usual boundaries separating audience from performance and let the audience feel part of the traditions they were seeing. The audience learned much, the volunteer chorus learned more. Indeed, many people made the transition from audience to chorus, or from audience to children's chorus to chorus. That doesn't mention Jack's non-Revels performances, or his efforts at bringing traditional music into the schools. Jack leaves a legacy that will be enriching us for generations.
