Summer Music @ Diana's

We had another Summer Music gathering last was a rather large group this time and was hosted by Diana, who spent the evening with her double bass in the 'minstrel's gallery'! We selected the music using our usual's what we played:
  • 'Bouree' from 'The Water Music' by Handel
  • Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 'Allegro assai' by J. S. Bach
  • 'My Bonny Boy' from 'Folk Song Suite' by Vaughan Williams
  • 'Promenade' from 'Pictures at an Exhibition' by Mussorgsky
  • 'Capriol Suite' by Peter Warlock
  • 'Olympic Fanfare & Theme' by John Williams
  • 'Chanson de Matin' Elgar
  • 'Sinfonia' from 'Pulcinella' by Stravinsky
  •  'Rondo' from 'Eine Kleine Nachtmusik' by Mozart
  • 'Toccata' from 'Pulcinella' by Stravinsky
  • Theme from 'Blackadder' by Howard Goodall
  • 'Overture' from 'Suite in B Minor' by J. S. Bach
Well, I think you'll agree that we had earned our refreshments after all that! Thank you to Diana for a lovely evening!

We have one more Summer gathering before term Imogen's on September 5th.
