Hi Winds Players,
Registration for WEMF 2020 (Whitewater Early Music Festival) begins
March 1! Some of us have attended for many years running, so I hope
you’ll consider joining in. You can pick classes according to your
playing level and interests, and they try to provide something for
everyone in a really welcoming and supportive environment.
Follow this link to the brochure to find all the information about the
faculty and classes. whitewaterearlymusic.org/
Here is a rendition of the Ultrecht score that I hope you’ll find a
little easier to read. There are a couple of changes compared to the
printed copy you have. There is wider note spacing horizontally, and
line 2 is transposed down an octave. The file includes parts, in case
you prefer that.
See you next week!
For those who were interested in studying the score for the Bach, I
think you should be able to find it in this shared folder.

You may have wondered about what the little eights written above (or
below) the clefs mean. Making this page helped me understand this
better. Notes that are aligned are exactly the same pitch, so you can
see how the different instruments overlap.
The eights indicate that the notes should sound an octave higher (or
lower) than the what is considered “normal” for the clef. The lowest
note on a tenor is middle C (often called “C4”). A soprano will sound an
octave higher, so there should be an octave clef on the soprano part to
distinguish it from the tenor part. Bass parts should really have an
octave clef, too, because the notes sound an octave higher than a normal
A reminder that we’ll meet on Monday as usual, and hope to see you there!
The most common recorder voices are shown. Soprano, tenor and great bass are C instruments. Alto, bass, and contrabass are F instruments. The lowest note on a tenor recorder is middle C. The range of each instrument is shown as two octaves. Most recorder settings are for SATB instruments, which together have about a 3-1/2 octave range.
