McNally Robinson is proud and excited to participate in this year's Biking to the Viking, an annual bike ride from Stonewall to Gimli in aid of those afflicted with multiple sclerosis.

Our team consists entirely of booksellers from our Grant Park store, but you too can help our effort. To truly support those suffering from MS, we need more than cyclists - we need donations.

By pledging our cyclists, your money will go directly to the MS Society of Canada, to help those suffering from the debilitating disease and to help the search for a cure. To find out more about the disease and to learn how your donations will be used, visit this page.

To sponsor our team and pledge our cyclists, visit this page. Click any name from our Team Roster on the right side of the page to pledge. These individual pledges will go towards our team's overall goal of $1,200.

Please consider donating to the MS Society of Canada, either through pledges to the McNally Robinson team or to the Society in general. All of us at McNally Robinson Booksellers thank you for your contributions. Together, maybe we can find a cure and end MS.

For more information about MS Bike and the MS Society of Canada, visit their website.

Classical Recording of the Week: John Holloway's Pavans

by Tyler Vitt - Monday, Jul 07, 2014 at 10:03am

In partnership with Winnipeg's Classic 107, we're proud to present our Classical CD of the Week...

John Holloway's Pavans & Fantasies From The Age Of Dowland

John Dowland's Lachrimae Pavans is considered one of the greatest works in the canon of English chamber music. Based upon his famous song "Flow My Teares", the seven pavans -- Seaven Teares, as Dowland called them -- present an extraordinary exploration of the contrapuntal and harmonic possibilities offered by the theme. In this remarkable recording, baroque violinist John Holloway creates a concert programme around the lachrimae Pavans. Threaded between Dowland's masterpieces are works of other major composers of his era -- Henry Purcell, William Lawes, John Jenkins, Thomas Morley and Matthew Locke. In bringing together these works of strongly contrasting colour and character Holloway and company give us a vivid sense of the great flowering of consort music which took place in England in the 17th century.

Look for our Classical CD of the Week display in the Music section of our Grant Park store to pick up a copy!
