Ira S. Einhorn, the flamboyant counterculture celebrity who spent the past 20 years fleeing prison for the murder of his girlfriend, was taken into custody by French police yesterday for a flight back to a new trial in the United States. "When we see him in handcuffs in the custody of an American citizen," "we will be really happy," said Meg Wakeman, the sister of Holly Maddux, a Bryn Mawr alumna who had been Einhorn's lover. Maddux's battered corpse was found in a steamer trunk in Einhorn's Philadelphia apartment 18 months after she disappeared in 1979.

J. Ernest Green's masterful conducting of the Annapolis Chorale, Chamber Orchestra and soloists in two performances of Richard Einhorn's "Voices of Light," an oratorio set to Carl Dreyer's 1928 silent film "The Passion of Joan of Arc," brought a unique experience to near-capacity audiences last weekend at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Having heard Einhorn's 1994 work in Green's January 1999 regional premiere, and again this March when Marin Alsop conducted it with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Baltimore Choral Arts Society at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, I was aware of its relevance and profound emotional impact.

Myrtle Ester Einhorn, a community activist and former supervisor of an anti-poverty program for the elderly, died Wednesday of congestive heart failure at Mariner Health of Bel Air. The longtime East Baltimore resident was 84. She was born Myrtle Tusing in Lost River, W.Va. Her mother died when she was 5, and Mrs. Einhorn was raised in a series of foster homes where she did difficult farm work during the Depression. She completed school through the eighth grade. After an early marriage ended in divorce, Mrs. Einhorn moved with three children to Baltimore and took a job in a factory sewing women's clothing.

The parent of Magna Entertainment Corp., which owns Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course, must stop funding the racetrack company's operations at the behest of its founder, a dissident shareholder of MI Developments Inc. said yesterday in a regulatory filing. Magna's ability to stay in business has been in "substantial doubt," according to its auditor, after losing money since 2002. But the company has survived on cash infusions from MID and Frank Stronach, the founder and chairman of both companies.

In its premier performance in the Baltimore-Washington region, "Voices of Light," directed by J. Ernest Green, will be presented Saturday by the Annapolis Chorale with the composer, Richard Einhorn, attending.The chorale will perform the oratorio as the composer intended, as an accompaniment to the screening of Carl Dreyer's 1928 silent film "The Passion of Joan of Arc."It seems appropriate that the Annapolis Chorale should introduce this work here, because it seems to be the only group of musicians dedicated to bringing new music to Annapolis.

"The Hunt for the Unicorn Killer" is a heckuva story that kept me pinned to the couch beginning to end.But, I warn you, it's docudrama, which means we don't know when and where truth is stretched to be more prime-time entertaining. And this is the kind of story in which what you believe to be true can have profound cultural implications.With "Unicorn," NBC takes us back to the 1960s. Before you run screaming from the TV set at the memory of "The Sixties," the miniseries that turned a cultural revolution into idiot psycho-babble and melodramatic mush, you need to know "Unicorn" does a much better job with the decade.

Every so often, one great work of art inspires another great work of art. Shakespeare's Othello and Verdi's Otello, for example. Or Carl Dreyer's stunning silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc and Richard Einhorn's mesmerizing oratorio Voices of Light. The Baltimore Choral Arts Society brought that movie and that music together at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Sunday night and produced one of the season's most memorable experiences. Einhorn's 1995 score, an exquisite mix of medievalism and minimalism, is not a frame-by-frame match for Dreyer's 1928 classic.

An oratorio written to accompany a film about a saint provided a gripping experience for a capacity audience Saturday when J. Ernest Green and the Annapolis Chorale, Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and soloists brought Richard Einhorn's Voices of Light and Carl Dreyer's film The Passion of Joan of Arc to Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Einhorn's contemporary minimalist music illuminates Dreyer's 1928 film in telling the story of a teen-age peasant girl who helped crown a king and won military victories by obeying the voices of saints directing her. These are the "voices of light" in Einhorn's work.

Anyone who was in the capacity audience at the regional premiere of Richard Einhorn's "Voices of Light" and Carl Dreyer's silent film, "The Passion of Joan of Arc," was fortunate. We shared a moving experience at the superb performance given by J. Ernest Green and the Annapolis Chorale, with the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra and soloists.Together, the film and the music define synergism, with the music underscoring and intensifying the film. As in opera, the music and drama fit, with the words perfectly matching the music.

PHILADELPHIA - After hiding in Europe and eluding authorities for 16 years, hippie-era guru Ira Einhorn was found guilty yesterday of murdering his former girlfriend, Holly Maddux, 25 years ago. A Philadelphia jury deliberated less than two hours before convicting Einhorn of first-degree murder, which carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison without chance of parole. Einhorn, 62, showed no emotion at the verdict, which drew smiles from the family of his victim. Maddux's three sisters and brother attended every day of the trial.

PHILADELPHIA - For a painfully long while, to the unending disgust of many, it looked like Ira Einhorn - the well-known hippie activist convicted in absentia for bludgeoning his former girlfriend to death more than 20 years ago - would serve his life sentence in the countryside of southern France. He would sleep, it appeared, under the tile roof of the quaint stone cottage he shared with his Swedish wife, instead of in a prison cell; frolic in the streams that ran alongside his property, instead of in a pen fenced with razor wire; and dine on lamb bourguignon and French wine, instead of turkey roll and Kool-Aid.
