About a year and a half ago, I had the great pleasure of taking part in a project with the Scottish group Concerto Caledonia, in which we played Tobias Hume’s music with a big group of fun instruments, most of which were sanctioned by the composer in his title page. The others were just too fun not to include. It was two viols, sometimes involving sympathetic stringing, Swedish nickelharpa, flutes, virginals, a pair of orpharions, cittern and theorbo. Luckily, this project turned into a recording, and it’s now out. So you can all go listen and buy it here!
