CONTINUUM: A Sideways Seductive Smile


Any young medieval man would have been entranced to get a Sideways Seductive Smile from a young lady. This is even true of modern times. On this Continuum you’ll hear medieval music written about this. Performing will be three of early music’s noted ensembles. The recordings used are: Cansos de Trobairitz (Hesperion XX) - Virgin VER 5 613102, Llibre Vermell de Monserrat (Hesperion XX) - Virgin VER 5 611742, Music from Christian & Jewish Spain (Hesperion XX) - Virgin Veritas 7243 5 61592 2 8, Diaspora Sephardi (Hesperion XXI) - Aliavox AV9809, and Giulio Caccini, Le Nuove Musiche (Schola Cantorum Basiliensis - dhm 77164-2-RG.

Milton has been the co-host (with Thais St. Julien) of Continuum since 1976. He is a true New Orleanean, born on Mardi Gras day, attending P. A. Capdau Grammar School and Warren Easton High School. After completing the five year program of the Tulane School of Architecture in 1956 he was drafted into the Army. After a two year stint in the combat engineers in Germany he returned to New Orleans to work with the architectural firm of Goldstein, Parham & Labouisse, becoming an associate in the firm of Parham & Labouisse after Mr. Goldstein’s death. He was appointed University Architect for Dillard University in 1972 and retired from that position in 2002.
