IAN BLAKE: Listen...

Bergomasca Bonza

(Ian Blake)

From Christine Hutchinson's ABC CD 'Out of the Hat': a tune written around the popular bergomask changes. Popular in the sixteenth century, anyway — but also featured in other early music such as 'Louie Louie' and 'Summertime Blues'.

I'm playing soprano sax, sopranino recorder, miscellaneous keyboards, a set of Jon Swayne's border pipes and a great big heathenish tambourine made of tree and brass and goat.
