The Recorder Group
Leader:  Joan Gibson - firstname.lastname@example.org -
The recorder group, meet twice a month, to make music in a relaxed, fun way. I would hope that we would be able to cater for a wide range of experience and skill. We meet each month on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, in the afternoon from 1.45 to 3.45pm.
Three of us met this afternoon, 2 descants and a treble (SSA). The number was disappointing, after a maximum of 6, but we managed to find enough suitable music to keep us happily occupied.
Madrigals (SSA): "Benedictus", "Where the Bee Sucks", and "It Was a Lover and His Lass"
Twelve Trios for Recorder Ensemble: Pavane by Arbeau
Recorder Poppets: all seven pieces (we haven't played any of these before, so it was good sight-reading practice!)
Bronze Recorder Ensemble Pieces: Gavotte, Copycats, the latter being a disaster from my point of view, as it's written for 3 descants, and I couldn't cope!
Our next meeting will be in 2 weeks' time, 19th March, here again.
Dates in April are complicated by Easter and grandchildren duty and precise dates are still being sorted out.
