clenchedfist00 in reply to James6767: one too many experiences with existentialists and french philosophers using awkward and clumsy metaphors that turn out shockingly profound makes me think that anything elicits from me must be so profound that i can't even begin to grasp it

clenchedfist00 in reply to James6767: that was very nice as well but it doesn't say what they are, are they really recorders or some obscure baroque wind instrument? btw james at my old porofessor's retirement party a woman brought a viola de gamba that was made for her ... she could only play a few notes but the sound was sublime
James6767: Yeah-they are recorders. the largest is a contra-bass. A viola da gamba is lovely-also easier to play than viol or cello because it has tied-on frets. Marin Marias was the KING of viol (a da gamba). I love his music as the quintessential high French baroque.
