Voices of Music releases a video from Hanneke van Proosdij’s recorder program

A little over a month ago, the second concert in the seventh season of Voices of Music featured co-Director Hanneke van Proosdij as soloist in a program entitled The Art of the Recorder. Her repertoire extended all the way from the istampittas of the Middle Ages to the world premiere of a new composition for her instrument. As usual, her co-Director David Tayler not only performed with her (on both archlute and baroque guitar) but also supervised members of his technical team, Hiro Matsuo and Sheila Newberry, to capture the concert on high-definition video.

Tayler has now edited one of the selections from this concert and uploaded it to the Voices of Music YouTube channel. This is the selection “Paul’s Steeple” from the collection Division Violin, published in London by John Playford in 1685. This is a set of tunes that can be played by any instrument (including the violin) over a repeating bass line (serving as “divisions” on that bass). In this particular performance the bass is performed by Tayler on guitar and Elisabeth Reed in gamba, with Peter Maund contributing lively accompaniment on tambourine. Tayler’s editing provides a generous set of views of the different performers, allowing for a vigorous viewing experience.
