I had to take some photos of the baroque alto recorder I’m selling, which was fun, so I went on with a renaissance recorder by Bob Marvin and it ended up being a little photo session. The quality may not be the best, I took the photos with a mobile phone 🙁 The photos of the baroque alto are here.

These appear as well in Ortiz’ great instruction book for diminutions Trattado de Glosas.

The other day I found this interesting video on early music printing in Luís Henriques Vimeo channel. Now I love the Finale program even more 😉 – what an effort it was back then! [Oh, and you will have to excuse that old school recorder playing at the beginning of the video.] Enjoy:

I’m transcribing early music pieces from the (sometimes) difficult to read original facsimiles into modern notation scores. It’s a work I find really interesting and highly satisfactory, for I get to know music that is … Read more
