Christmas 2010

Christmas this year followed the established tradition, but was notable for being a “white” one! It was nice to be able to look out on a snowy world from our cosy flat, and enjoy the cup-cakes confectioned by Seán and Áedán

Jacqueline gets her own gamba built

After several hired instruments which were never really satisfactory, Jacqueline decided to get her own six-stringed “Collichon” bass gamba built, and also got her own bow, made out of “snake-wood”. The instrument builder is Stephan Schürch, whom we have got to know as an expert violone player accompanying the Zürcher Kantorei zu Predigern.
