Margot suite from Lowell concert

Margot labourez les vignes, by
and Lassus
was our first act closer. We played the Arcadelt on a 4-foot
recorder consort, then sang it, and then played it with the loud
band, with cornetto, fiddle, 5-string fiddle, and serpent.

Then we sang the rest of the story (underlay completely
editorial) to the Lassus setting in two verses, and then played a
slow, wistful version on 8-foot recorders.

Here’s an
of the whole thing, with what I remember as some fairly
awkward choreography between verses edited out by our recording
engineer Ishmael Stefanov.
