St. Cecilia the patroness of music

St. Cecilia is the patroness of musicians. Her feast is celebtrated on November 22, and that's why today we attended a concert at our school. The musician José Manuel Baena explained why St. Cecilia is considered the patron saint of music. However, if you search the web you will see different versions such as the following:

1. Cecilia's musical fame rests on a passing notice in her legend that she sang praises to God as she lay dying a martyr's death.

2. When Cecilia was married they played pagan Roman music but Cecilia said she was singing hymns of praise to God in her heart.


a) Can you share what the teacher of music told us? Please, leave a comment.

On the other hand, we were lucky to enjoy the music played by the four artists that performed: Isabel, Pablo, Diana and José Manuel. There were also a group of students who interpreted Carmina Burana with their flutes.


b) Find out which pieces of music they interpreted and which musical instrument they played. Please, leave a comment.


C) Did you enjoy the concert? What did you feel? Is silence important for you? Please, leave a comment.

Here you have some pictures.

And we're back with GET!

Dear students. I'm sorry about my absence during the last months, but a little child takes my whole time every day and almost every minute and second! :) Fortunately, we've still communicated through edmodo, but sharing things on the blog may help more people in the world than merely our class. Hence, Let me suggest an interesting site to keep on learning English out of class:


The link will take you to this week's lesson: meanings of the English verb GET, get it? :) Little verb, but full of meaning!
