Last notes

The hidden treasures of Cheshire country life; attended a concert in a tiny parish church in Whitegate the other night and was treated to the full choir and five-piece viol group doing music of the early 17th century for Advent.

H.L. Hassler (1564-162,) Peter Philips (1560-1626) and others, offered by the Renaissance Music Group, Dir. Morris Davies and Chester Viols, Dir. Peter Syrus.

It was poorly attended because they didn't advertise it very well, but, all the more for us eh?

And all in a very lovely English Gothic church, half timbered and all Gothic-arched.

Too bad you don't live in the middle of nowhere!

To get an idea:
Listen to Jordi Savall
