Here is an excerpt from a music video I am working on featuring hurdy gurdy, reed organ, the voice of Katy Marchant and the bass viol playing of the late Mike Edwards, taken from a recording from 2007.  Mike's untimely death was 10 years ago (3rd September 2010) so this is a small tribute to him.

This hurdy gurdy piece comprises interlocking patterns based around the division of two turns of the wheel into three units, each sometimes subdivided into three or four (for the trompette); played on two contrasting hurdy gurdies by Chris Eaton and Sam Palmer.

The first part of an Italian instrumental istanpitta from the 14th century (with a bit of random playing at the's just a sort of demo).
