We've been rehearsing with Darryl Edwards for the upcoming concert which has been many lols. The repertoire is Jacobean and Carolingian music by composers like the Lawes Bros., Nicholas Lanier etc. Words are by Ben Jonson, Herrick, Shakespeare and others.

Here's some snapshots from the rehearsals.

Darryl explains how he purchased three 5 dollar footlong sandwiches, one each.

Hallie reflects on the sad fate of Hero and Leander as she prepares to rehearse Lanier's great Lament thereon.
John has been having balls of fun using English theorbo tuning, which has only the top string down the 8ve, and is 'in G'; Good for c minor and Eb major, which your English composers liked.
