In Response To: Re: Chevalier de Saint-Georges ()
Dear Mr. Banat:
Thank you for responding to the queries and discussion about 18th century composer Chevalier de Saint-George. I hope that you notice that I've dropped the "s" on George. I suggested the Hotel de Ville because it could certainly be a starting point for one's research. Thanks for mentioning the Archives de la Ville de Paris/Archives d'Insinuation de la Seine. I plan on visiting Paris soon and will make a visit there.
I haven't read your book, "The Chevalier de Saint-Georges - Virtuoso of the Sword and the Bow", but I will certainly buy it. I searched for your book on the web and found a wonderfully beautiful web page that includes his music and a link to NPR's broadcast of his life and music:

I've included the webpage below on the main Optional Link below.
The Afrigeneas Writers Forum is dedicated to support not only authors of family history, but to highlight the works of writers of the African Diaspora history, their poetry and of course their music. Therefore I appreciate your posting about Afro-French/Caribbean composer Chevalier de Saint-George.
Earlier discussions of Chevalier de Saint-George have been archived. So I will repost them again to share with our Afrigeneas readers. I'll also forward a copy of this message to George Geder who's the Manager of our Book Forum.
Can you answer a question for me? The images of Saint-George are usually the same painting with a slight variation. Is this image taken from an actual painting of Saint-George?
I do hope that on one of my trips to Paris, I can one day thank the Mayor of Paris, Bertrand DelanoŽ for naming the city's street in Saint-George's memory.
Good luck and success in your book on the life of Chevalier de Saint George.
