STS Digital A Pritty Thing (STS6111165LP)

Music by Scottish composer Tobias Hume played on the extraordinary Viola Da Gamba.

For any lover of the Viola Da Gamba (not now a well known or often played instrument) or lover of 16th / 17th Centurry music, this album of compositions from the hand of Scottish composer Tobias Hume (1579-1645) will come as something of a revelation. 

Recorded in the Chapel of the Frransciscan Convent in Utrecht, Ralph Rousseau plays a 6-string Viola da Gamba made by Georrge Aman in the early 18th Century. 

The Viola da Gamba has been a regular instrument Ralph has played at his concerts over the past 20 years, this recording onto tape for LP has had no editing whatsoever and the results are stunning.
