Here we are, at St. Michael and All Angels, Walthamstow! That's Mark Caudle in the middle, playing treble. When I first started playing on period instruments, over 40 years ago, Mark was the first baroque cellist I worked with. We have kind of grown up together in early music.
Between Mark and me is Louise Jameson, also playing treble. Louise hides her light under a bushel; not only London's top dog orchestral administrator, Louise is a fine playing musician too. Ilana Cravitz started the London Klezmer Quartet and wrote a book about klezmer violin playing. Ilana is playing tenor, on Mark's left. We all bow down to Reiko Ichise (on the right), Goddess of the Viol. Reiko is playing tenor viol too.
