BGS Meeting 6th Oct 2018

This evening we welcomed a new player who joined in with the ensemble playing. We hope he will become a member of the Society.

John has enrolled the ensemble for the Beckenham Festival on Sunday 18th November, so we are concentrating efforts on our three pieces:

Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring by J S Bach arranged in four parts.
On the whole we kept the beat well. Part 4 players need to remember to retune string 6 back to E before playing the next piece.

Minuet by Boccherini arranged by K Love.
Still a tendency to speed up.

Sage Leaf from The English Dancing Master 1670, arranged by Andrew Forrest.

After a break for refreshments and chat, we listened to four solos..


Tom Study in G (Napoleon Coste)
Max [debut] Wild Mountain Thyme (arr. Scott Tennant)
Eduardo Prelude (Hart)
Andrew [on Lute] Galliard (Holborne)
 Lady Hudson's Puff (John Dowland)


The evening was rounded off by the ensemble playing our three pieces through again..
