The Recorder Group

Leader is Joan Gibson email recorder@ashbyu3a.co.uk

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 on the 1st and 3rd Thursday mornings each month.

We had a trio this morning, so we were able to play a different range of music.

We played some from Abracadabra Bk 5 in 3 parts:
When a Knight Won his Spurs,
Day Oh
You are my sunshine

We played "All in a Garden Green" for descant and treble

We tried some new music which I emailed you earlier: another version of "All in a Garden Green" and "Drive the Cold Winter Away", arranged in 4 parts (D1, D2,Tr,Ten) for the U3A. We omitted the D2 part! We did well with the sight-reading, but hope to practise for next time! The middle section is quite different from the ends, and was unfamiliar.

I have some new 4-part music! I'll see if I can email it to you, but can print it out. How many of you need paper copies?

Lots of fun!

Next meeting 2nd November, here. I hope you can make it.
