Busy week recording Ruggieri

Seagulls! Despite the intrusive exclamations of the Aberdonian Mega-Gulls resident atop the towers of King’s College (I think they were teaching the fledglings to fly, and it was all terribly exciting), the Aberdeen Early Music Collective, and dearly beloved guests, managed to finish only a few hours behind schedule…Watch this space! On the menu was a representative collection of soprano and alto cantatas and trio sonatas from this contemporary of Vivaldi. Aberdeen musicologist Jasmin Cameron’s research has unearthed many interesting details of his somewhat dodgy life (he died in prison), and has made his works available for performance in modern editions.
