Sweet Sounds

I caught the violist Jordi Savall on Radio 3 this morning, playing the Celtic viol while someone whose name I didn't catch played the Irish harp. They made a beautiful sound. Browsing later I found this - Greensleeves as you've never heard it, with Savall playing viola da gamba and someone unnamed on theorbo. It's rather wonderful, I think...


  1. Hello, Nige. I posted the rather bad-tempered, leftist comment a week or so ago. I just wanted to say that Nigeness is proving an essential aid in getting through the dog days of the year. Keep up the good work.

  2. Well that's very kind of you Anonymous - thank you.
