HELP! For a production of OTHELLO I'm directing at CCNY I could use
references to appropriate music: the drinking songs, Desdemona's
Willow song, appropriate heraldic trumpetings for Venice and for
Cyprus. We are setting the play at about the year 1500 -- costumes,
set-furniture, and properties, and now we have to work out musical
possibilities for showing the shift from Venice to Cyprus.
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
