Boys' Historical Clothing: New 2013 pages

Catholic coristers
Figure 1.--This fresco by Domenico Ghirlandaio (1449�1494) is titled 'Obsequies of St Fina' was painted about 1473-75 for the Collegiate Church of San Gimignano. Some sharp eyed readers will recognize it as the art saved by the English ladies from the Germans, a real life event portrayed in the lovely film, 'Tea with Musolini'. Notice the choir boys in the painting. They are not singings, but that must be their purose as such an group of boys would not be needed just to assist the priests. This shows us how the Church was using choristrs at the time, but not of course what music they were singing.

Some HBC readers tell us that they would like to be able to access new pages, but do not want to receive E-mails on every new page added to HBC. We have also for several years now experienced problems dealing with AOL. Thus we have created this page for HBC readers. We will list new pages or existing pages to which we have added additional information. We used to maintain a page like this. We know from this experience that we sometimes forget to add a new page, but we will try to remember to do this as much as possible. There will not be a link on our home page so you will want to add this to your favorites/book marks. We plan to only make this page available to readers who support HBC. There may be occasional changes in the URL. Just let me know if you have any question about this new HBC feature.
