    I like how the baroque trumpet had a tassle hanging from it.

    The first time I heard of Wagner and Handel was Jimi Hendrix talking about them.
    Jimi just didn't have an aquatic theme for some songs, he sounded underwater.
    With stereo headphones, Jimis' waves washed ashore on your brain, all sounds being directional.
    "1983, A Merman I Would Be... moon... turn the tides... gently, gently away".
    Yes, that is a song title, eighteen minutes long, an overdub symphony.

    William Child lived from 1606 till 1697 - but this is the only piece by him that I can find on YouTube:

    Ella, that is really a fascinating find, which got me searching for more and found a short biography and more of his works:-
