2008 Chaucer Party Pictures

The celebration consists of two parts. First, there is a memorial Mass to honor the author's request. Then the festivities move to the hall for a party featuring food and drink from Chaucer's time. Finally, there is a series of readings in Middle English with the very last being a chance for everyone to recite the lines of the General Prologue memorized so long-ago : Whan that Aprill with his shoures soote . . . It makes for a jolly ending to the celebration of Chaucer.
Note: this year, the Mass was recorded by Classic Elegance and they can be contacted for a DVD (sgbmgb@aol.com or 909-596-0542).
