Thank you Winsome!
Australia’s foremost early music specialist, Winsome Evans OAM BEM, has donated her French Double Harpsichord made by Mars McMillan to the College.
In addition, she has given us many medieval and renaissance woodwind and percussion instruments and a wealth of music scores, books and period costumes. Amongst this collection is a three-octave set of hand bells and a portative organ. Students have begun the process of learning these instruments.
This video features highlights of the special “thank you” concert we performed for Ms Evans in the Santa Sabina Chapel in November, making good use of the harpsichord and the other instruments.
