Friday at CAMMAC

It is not everywhere that you can hear recorder players playing on a set of Bob Marvin renaissance recorders. It is almost like listening to an organ.
One place I love to play is the Studio Gaby - a former boathouse. There are windows on three sides which look out on the lake. As I mentioned in another post, people get together in the afternoon to play through music together.
I did not have my DSLR camera with me. I did take some time to play with settings and learn to use it in the manual setting. I'm not sure what this bush is. I used to have one in front of my house but it was a legacy from the previous owners.
As a child I loved picking these; we would walk around with one dangling from the mouth - now I am really not sure why!
The harpsichord is a staple of early music - both as a solo instrument and as the continuo line (the accompaniment and bass line).
At times the players play at such great speed it is hard to catch a clear photograph. The image vibrates with the sound.
Even with a slow movement - there is motion.
Friday evening is the last of the concerts by the teachers. They closed with an excerpt from Monteverdi's Vespers.
