Thread Name: Moravian music?
Subject: RE: Moravian music?
Lynn an all others interested
In 1744 a Moravian settlement was foundedon the edge of Pudsey in West Yorkshire which was named Fulneck, coicidence was I was there as part of my business yesterday. It is an exceedingly interestin place with many listed buildings. In 1753 a school was built there for the residents and is still in opperation and has arround 450 students (See wikipedia). Some 50 years ago whilst at school one of our annual fixtures was at Fulneck school and I remember well the stone baths and stone seats and floors of the school, also the wonderful food we were fed with following the match.
I will again be in the area next week and I will call into the Craft Shop if open, unfortunatly the last day this year for the Museum was yesterday, yet another coincidence, this time unfortunate. If there is any information regarding their music in addition to that you have already obtained I will try to forward via this thread, please be patient as I am not sure exactly when the Craft Shop is open or when I will be able to call if I miss out next week.
