Can anyone recommend a good recording of the music from AYLI, or just a good
recording of Shakespeare music in general?

Two disks that I've found useful in my teaching are *Popular Music from the
Time of Queen Elizabeth I* by the Camerata of London (Saga Classics SCD 9013),
which has seven songs from the stage along with a number of others from the
period, and *The Art of the Bawdy Song* by The Baltimore Consort and The Merry
Companions (Dorian DOR-90155).
 
I've been looking high and low for a film version of *Macbeth* which probably
came out in the early 80s.  My best memory is of a Siskel and Ebert review of
the film.  It was updated to modern times, and maybe even had modernized
dialogue:  I remember them showing a clip in which a husband and wife were
trying to figure out what to do with the body of the boss, whom they'd just
done to death in the kitchen.  Can't remember whether the film was supposed to
be good or who was in it.
 
Not much to go on, I know, but if any of you have even slight leads, I'd
appreciate hearing them.
 
Best,
Kirk Hendershott-Kraetzer

I'm currently teaching a Shakepeare Performance class for professional actors
in San Diego.  I use Barton's and Berry's books, and exercises from six years
of acting training. I always am searching for better exercises. Specifally ones
that will help the actor personalize the text and exercises to activate the
student.  Love to hear about specific tools/ exercises that others have come
across which have been successful.
