I went to bed on the early side last night and woke up feeling great! The key to adjusting to time change for me is to stay up until I can go to bed at a normal hour. It worked like a charm!
Today I am rehearsing with the continuo section (the bass line and chords of a figured bass line): viola da gamba, theorbo and harpsichord.
Here is Andrew on the gamba:
John M and John A on harpsichord and theorbo:
Here is another shot of the theorbo. It is a beautiful instrument (especially this particular one, which has a louder sound than most theorbos I've heard):
And the three guys together:
The two baroque violinists arrive tomorrow, so we are trying to give everything a good run through before they join the group. Aside from more rehearsing, tomorrow should also bring at trip in Camden. We will also be taking a trip on the Appledore later this week (John M.'s dad is the captain). It will be nice to get to enjoy a little bit of this beautiful state while we're here!
