Tonight, John and I went to the High School Madrigal Dinner. It was a great time of entertainment, laughter and music. We really had a wonderful time and enjoyed the food. Hey, I enjoy any kind of food that I don't have to cook myself.
I was introduced to a Madrigal dinner a long time ago in Petoskey, MI. My dear friend Jenilee (sorry I stole your picture there on the left) was in Madrigals and John and I went to one of the dinners. I loved the whole event. So needless to say when I heard about the dinner here I was very excited.
They sang one of my favorites.....
Riu riu chiu, la guarda ribera;
Dios guardo el lobo de nuestra cordera,
Dios guardo el lobo de neustra cordera.
El lobo rabioso la quiso morder,
Mas Dios poderoso la supo defender;
Quisola hazer que no pudiese pecar,
Ni aun original esta Virgen no tuviera.
Riu, riu chiu...Este qu'es nacido es el gran monarca,
Christo patriarca de carne vestido;
Hemos redemido con se hazer chiquito,
Aunqu'era infinito, finito se hiziera.
Riu, riu chiu
And the Jester ( a student we know) asked before the event if my hubby wouldn't mind being apart of the program for a bit. So I sold him to the Jester during the program for some cheese (which I didn't get). Which I did yell out, "Hey where is my cheese!" and then he was given to the Queen Mother for a gift, literally. Hahahahahah the whole thing was very funny and of course my Hubby played the part well. Ha! What a good sport. I think they picked him because they knew he would play along. He got to then sit with the Queen mother for a bit until she realized he was married. She then sent him away! (He is sitting to the right of her in the second picture)
