Lucinda played her baroque violin and Glenys her beautiful Australian built harpsichord complete with Australian bush scene painted on the underside of the lid.

 

The 'basso continuo' in the program above was a term often used for a range of instruments providing accompaniment to the main instrument - in this case it refers to the harpsichord.

 

Lucinda and Glenys gave comprehensive and fascinating verbal introductions to most of the pieces, leaving us with much to think about.
