I'm not familiar >with the play so I can't provide the exact plot details.   I'm afraid I don't know anything about Racine, but I do know a little about the Hebrew Bible (or the Old Testament as it used to be called before we all became politically correct.) The story of Athalia/Athalie occurs in 2 Kings 11 and 2 Chron. 22-23. Athalia was the daughter of Ahab and Jezebel and was Queen of Israel c. 846-841 B.C.E. She was the wife of King Jehoram and succeeded to the throne in her own right when her son Ahaziah was assassinated. She in turn was assassinated and succeeded by Jehoash. I am not entirely sure where the War March of the Priests would fit into this, but as most of the assassinations seem to be directed by the High Priest, Jehoida, there would seem to be quite a bit of scope for one.   John

Can't remember having seen it at my local opera theater, have you?   \/\/\    
(back) Subject: Alexander Brailowsky, - pianist. From: Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Date: Wed, 10 Sep 1997 15:50:48 -0400   I would like to do a radio programme featuring the pianist Alexander Brailowsky, and although the LPs that I have give some details regarding his career, none if them give his dates of birth, or his death, - I am assuming that he is no longer with us.   I realise that this is not really "organic", for which I apologise, - but there is such a wealth of knowledge in both the lists that I am sure that some-one can give me the infromation.   Many thanks, Bob Conway <conwayb@post.queensu.ca> Organic DeeJay Emeritus, - mostly!
