Lot 0081A
Donated By: Donick Cary, Emmy-Award winning writer/producer (Letterman /Simpsons / Parks and Recreation /Silicon Valley)

Continental Europe, Baroque Period, ca. 17th century. A two-sided vellum page, hand-illustrated with antiphonal musical annotation and lyrics in Latin. Blue and red details form a large capital letter on each side. This page came from an antiphonary, one of the liturgical books created for use by the liturgical choir in the Roman Catholic Church. An antiphon in Christian music is a responsory by a choir or congregation, often a Gregorian chant. Two choirs sing in alternation, one singing the verses of a psalm and the other singing a refrain (the antiphon). Antiphonal chants have a fascinating history and reflect the ancient choral traditions of the Church. Examples of these chants are the Introit and Communion. Size: 15.25" W x 21.25" H (38.7 cm x 54 cm)

Making music happen since 2009…

Today, Musack's mission is to give kids and teens a voice through music by providing guitars, drums, and support for music teachers - wherever the need arises.

But back in 2009, Emmy-Award winning writer/producer Donick Cary (Letterman /Simpsons / Parks and Recreation /Silicon Valley) began Musack with a simple vision - raise money to fund musical programs for his hometown high school on Nantucket Island. After a rash of teen suicides on the island, Donick thought about how he and his friends got through their teen years. Music.

Musack continues to make music happen around the world with support from people like you. All lots offered for sale in today’s fundraising auction have been donated by celebrities, non-celebrities, and local businesses. Help us help our kids - bid high, bid often!
