Lidi, I've just listened to the piece and I'm not convinced it is from Carmina Burana. But I also don't know what it is from, so I'd hang fire and save your pennies.

Can you not 'buy this track' as it says on the Radio Blog?

I'd like to know who taught Dextro to sing English in a Wezz Cunnry accent i.e. Ring of Fooiirrr :lol: I think you'll find its more of an Irish twang, seeing as he lived there for several years.

Leave the steel in the water for as long as you can bear to (preferably days!) shake it up every so often to encourage the water to work on oxidizing the steel. Whe...

How to move in period clothing

Ladies & Gents, Something has me a little puzzled. I’ve seen on some of the ‘best/worst film’ rants that some folks have noted that certain actors/actresses don’t know how to move in medieval / period clothing. I’ve been to a couple of events now in kit, and although I'm still very much a newbie...

Hi Sophia,

I don't know what others do but I washed all my fabric (linen and wool) before I made up any garments - I had the time and I wanted to be on the safe side. All washed at 40 degrees.

No idea about silk as I've never used it.
