My music passion for July is a “Medieval Bells Composition” by a quirky, comic, group of French performers who go under the name of Companie Les Gueules de Loup. When I stumbled across this video on YouTube, it had me in stitches laughing, but I do have a very strange sense of humour, so be warned. I guess a piece of music that doesn’t have a proper title, isn’t taking itself seriously.
Just for a little snippet of information, the wonderful woodwind instruments accompanying the bells, are shawms, which were the double-reeded forerunner to the oboe.
