Daphne, a popular English tune, appears three times with variations in Van Eyck's 1644 collection Der Fluyten Lust-Hof. In this class we’ll work together on Doen Daphne d’over schoone Maeght. Participants should prepare this version of the tune and at least one of the variations (exists in volume I of the edition listed below as well as the 1957 Vellekoop edition), so that we can study his variation technique and see how we can solve our own technical problems. There will be time for some participants to demonstrate a variation for the class.
Open to: upper intermediate to advanced soprano recorder players. Pitch: A=440.
