"Balletto del Granduca" Arr. Sweelinck

Get Flash to see this player.

Here's a quick piece I threw together to demonstrate my new Susato Kelhorn. Before you go knocking me about the intonation, I just want you to know that this wasn't really supposed to be a polished performance. Also, the Kelhorn (like the Renaissance reed instruments it replicates,) has rather imprecise tuning to begin with. On top of that, my studio is in the basement which is quite cold this time of year, so that only added to my problems.
So anyway, just a quick demo, and I hope to get a better piece finished soon.

Sounds pretty good to me. Anyone who plays Renaissance music, especially on authentic instruments, has my respect.

Wow. A kelhorn on MacJams. That must be the most obscure instrument yet. The recorder+kel/krum horn combo works very nicely. Good to see authentic renaissance music on MJ.

Funny... :) I just have a bass now, but I'm hoping to get a set of them eventually and do some real consort pieces. For now, though, it adds some nice bass to the recorders.

I liked this. I suppose it is the live feel. Shame I couldn't download it.
