The Recorder Group

Leader:  Joan Gibson - 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 each month on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays, in the afternoon from 1.45 to 3.45pm.

9th January

Just to recap from this afternoon's meeting: there were 4 of us, so no bass part.

We played:
The Earle of Salisbury
Arbeau's Pavane
Madrigals: Where the Bee Sucks, Benedictus, How Merrily We Live, It Was a Lover and His Lass.
Try a Trio
Easy Celtic Pieces
4 Spirituals

I think that's it. Some of the music comes in individual parts, rather than the full score, which means we have to count carefully to keep together! It's all good for the brain, as long as it doesn't explode.

Next meeting on 23rd January, same place and time.
