What Lady Johanna Swann would wear. She was a niece of the Lord of Stonehelm in the early second century who became an influential courtesan known as the Black Swan in Lys.
After driving pirates from the Stepstones in the late first century, the Triarchy became gradually greedier with their tolls for passage, with the Lyseni captains even taking women, girls, and comely boys to turn into bedslaves. When fifteen years old, Johanna was thus enslaved, and her niggardly uncle Lord Swann refused to pay the ransom. Johanna became a celebrated courtesan known as the Black Swan, and was eventually ruler of Lys in all but name.

RIP to a true fashion legend.
Russia’s State Hermitage Museum hires cats to protect the artwork from rodents. The cats run around the attic and basement by the dozens, but there can’t be more than 60 at a time because they’ll start slacking off at work and getting into cat fights. Source
Philippine Madrigal Singers performing “We Beheld Once Again the Stars (Riveder le Stelle)” by Z. Randall Stroope.
Lyrics are from Dante’s Inferno.
How good is this version? Well, if you go to Stroope’s website and look at his pieces, he links to this specific video as an example of this piece. And since I doubt a composer would misrepresent himself by giving a bad or subpar performance of his work as a sample, we can assume that this is, probably, the best performance of this piece out there :D.
Please note the purity of the soprano at around the 6:40 mark onwards, and the way they sound like a much larger choir than they actually are. A lot of that probably has to do with the acoustics of the venue, but I also attribute it to the talent of the singers themselves - a feat, because singing that well while seated is extremely difficult XD.
