Doreen Muskett, after fighting Parkinson’s for 44 years passed away an hour ago. Her need for a teaching book has led to 3 editions and a 4th in preparation, helping to make the hurdy-gurdy more popular in many countries.
Doreen has recently been under gentle sedation. This morning I played to her a French dance tune, a musette by Bach and aFrench lullaby, Fait dodo. A few minutes later she gave up the struggle knowing I was beside her,

Please remember that Carols are songs for accompanying a round dance, gentle and not riotously fast. Perhaps you would dedicate such a dance in her memory. And please collect for Parkinson’s research.

To all my friends far and near
Happy Christmas
Michael

I’m so sorry, Michael. Doreen will live forever through her contribution to the gurdy playing community.

I am so sorry Michael. It is wonderful how she was able to pass over you playing to her. She will take these memoriers with her into her new realm. 

She will be forever remembered by the Hurdy Gurdy community. 

Love

Christa

Dear Michael,

Sorry to hear this. The Muskett method book was my first guide in learning to play the hurdy-gurdy. Thinking of you.

Michael,
I’m so very sorry to hear of Doreen’s passing. There is never enough time to spend with those we love even if we have a life time together.

I will gladly play a tune with you both in mind!

Again, my most sincere sympathies on your loss.

Felicia.

I only today came across this notice of Doreen Muskett's passing. Like many, I owed her much for her patient and meticulous teaching of the hurdy gurdy . I count myself very fortunate to have been able to learn the instrument from her.  She is well remembered.
