The Windsor Box & Fir Co play Bach

The Windsor Box & Fir Co play Bach

September 2017: 'Another Bite of Bach', a Windsor Fringe lunchtime concert at All Saints Church. The performers were the Windsor Box & Fir Co, who play 18th Century music on instruments of the period. That's Ian Gammie in the foreground on bass viol, Katharine May at the harpsichord, Michael Sanderson on violin, and Jenny Thomas on flute. (Jenny is petite, but I managed somehow to shrink her further -- and next time I shall position myself so as to draw more of Katharine!). All Saints Church made the national news last year when an altarpiece designed by the novelist Thomas Hardy was discovered behind panelling. That's the altarpiece at the right-hand side of my sketch. We looked in on the restorers after the performance, learning more about the extraordinary cover-up that kept Hardy's altarpiece hidden from sight and mind for nearly one hundred years. https://www.apollo-magazine.com/why-we-should-take-thomas-hardy-seriously-as-an-architect/
