Double I think. He talked a lot about the time signature of the gigue.

I don’t know how it was tuned, I didn’t buy a programme (to mean!) i am sure it wasn’t equal though.

By the way, do you have Willi Apel’s  History of keyboard music before 1700? There’s a copy in a London bookshop which is affordable - just, and I’m wondering whether to take the plunge. My real concern is that it’s very out of date.

I own an edition in German, which I read equally well as English. The German edition was much cheaper than the English. Even if the book is some years old, I find it mandatory for someone with interest in the topic. I do not know of any similarly comprehensive work.

It's Van Asperen; one has to be Bullish about it.

Yeah... I ordered it by the way.

I now own Christopher Hogwood’s old copy, with his monogram on the fly leaf.

This is the best Bull I know, maybe apart from Hantai and Rampe.

These are so to say all that is available - other than Belder, Payne and Watchorn/Esfahani.

There’s this which I’ve not heard, I have a Sweelinck recording by her which I remember enjoying. I won’t make any jokes about Cok and Bull.

There’s a couple of Bull pieces by Lydia Maria Blank on YouTube,including a big In Nomine, by the way.

I also own the Sweelinck/Philips and wasn't that impressed.

LMB ought to record more. YouTube may stimulate the interest, but SQ is too bad.

Would that imply cook or cock?

Cock. There’s an expression  « a cock and bull story » and The Cock and Bull is a pretty common name for a pub. Because of this « Cok’s Bull » sounds funny, I can hardly bring myself to write it! It doesn’t help that cock is a slang word for penis and bull sound like ball = testicle, and in Northern England « cock » is a friendly term of endearment, as in « what’s up, cock? »

I just abandoned Cok’s Bull after 10 minutes and am now enjoying Rampe at Tangermunde.

That was fast. I use to do a 15 minutes test.

But very few can compete with Rampe and the Tangermünde organ.
