Paris, Schedelsche Weltchronik (The Nuremberg Chronicle) by Hartmann Schedel, c. 1493 via Wikimedia Commons

Oh yes, a wonderful book. The article about the French capital explains its founding by Aeneas, Paris and Hector, after they were forced to leave Troy. Its original version was written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel and was later translated into Early Modern High German (this illustration appears in this German version). The chronicle is a gorgeous mixture of history and very weird legends. Great fun indeed.

The Virtual Downton Choir is searching for an experienced piano player, who can play an accompaniment for our next piece? Score and instructions are already ready and available, so DEAR TUMBLR-DOWNTONIANS, please step forward and send us a message.

The recording would need to be done in a month, the singers will then record their bits and, if all goes well, the publishing will happen at the start of series 5 in the UK… Exciting!
