A comment on the previous post warms me against playing my Lute in Church, well I am going to do it!
The very next time we sing Vespers on a feast of the Blessed Virgin, providing there are five coped cantors in choro and we have 16 cembalini on either side of the Church and a band of sackbutts and cornetts in the gallery. What is good enough for Monteverdi in San Marco, is good enough for us in St Mary Magdalen. Anyone know where you hire a jobbing Patriarch?
And I want this to precede Vespers - glorious
