    Blanchet harpsichord set on GO

    Recorded this using the Blanchet harpsichord with the pedal enhancement (to take advantage of the 16' stop) "played" by Finalé Songwriter

    Harpsichord lesson 3 by Maurice Greene C1750, one of a set of 15. Should I try and slow it down a bit, this is just how it came from the download.

    Interesting! Not quite certain about the speed. As an exercise it would seem to be an interesting challenge to the student. for listening the first portion seems a likkle fas to pick out the melody, the second section is somewhat slower.

    To my untalented ear it did sound a tad fast. Can you slow it down, or do you have to start from scratch.

    well I have played pieces that were this fast and as an exercise it would be for gaining technique which includes fast performance issues.I rather enjoed it actually.

    The scores for the Maurice Greene harpsichord lessons and voluntaries can be found on WIMA

    http://icking-music-archive.org/ByComposer/Greene.php

    12 voluntaries then the 15 lessons at bottom of page.

    August 12th is the 315th anniversary of Greene's birth, how about a few members recording one or two of his works to upload for the day.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Hi Mike,

    I couldn't make it on time.... I had lesson No1 already in my archive but no time to be ready to perform it ok for the 12th...

    Also , courrently I'm recording J.F.Dandrieu's Magnificat suite No1 and studying Boyce to be ready for the September's Anniversary. A voluntary for organ will be, probably no7, but not finally decided yet ... he he, I'll let you know soon.

    And a tip for Blanchet and the other Sonimusicae harpsis, as they are dry (good) :

    We can use ReaRoute Asio Driver installed with Reaper as the driver for GrandOrgue and this way (Reaper must be open of course) we can add reverb and other effects and we can have top quality professional recordings with.

    Best
