Sweet pipes (theme)

by Helen Hooker March. 23, 2011 3865 views

I suppose it was inevitable that I would use a recorder for today??s ??pipes?? theme but I wasn??t going to let that stop me! This is my Ganassi recorder, a copy of an instrument from around 1535, which I use to play renaissance solo music. It produces the most wonderfully fruity sound and I just adore in the patterns in the grain of the wood. If you??re wondering about the title of this post it??s a reference to one of the recorder??s alternative names. In Germany it??s called a Blockflöte (literally a block flute), in France a Flute à Bec (flute with a beak) but in Italy it??s the Flauto Dolce ?? the sweet flute.

I can see the grain in the wood, because the photo is so clearly taken! Wonderful image and idea. (My first thought was a "pipe" organ!)

I would've been disappointed, Helen, if you'd posted anything ELSE! Beautiful instrument, and I'm sure you play it well!

I thought it might be a recorder, but I love your choice with its pale wood grains
