David Hogan Smith will present 5-part music for the chapter meeting on February 19
February's chapter meeting will be conducted by David Hogan Smith, whose settings and editions are always a pleasure to play from! If you wish to bring "buzzies" (krumhorns, sordunes and the like) this music is perfectly suited for them.
DAVID HOGAN SMITH is the founder and director of The King's Trumpetts and Shalmes, a four-member ensemble which performs music of the Renaissance for shawm band. Its repertoire extends from the late 14th century to the mid-17th century, utilizing early wind instruments such as shawms, sackbuts, recorders, and crumhorns. The King’s Trumpetts and Shalmes performs regularly throughout the San Francisco Bay area. David has compiled, arranged and published an extensive collection of printed music for shawms, brass, crumhorns, recorders, oboes, and mixed instruments under The King's Trumpetts and Shalmes Music Editions. He is an accomplished musician and reed maker, who has also published two scholarly works: Reed Design for Early Woodwinds which has been hailed as an exhaustive and well-researched reed handbook for Renaissance wind instruments; and Trombone Technique in the Renaissance: a discussion of the acoustic design and usage of the trombone during the 16th and 17th centuries. David is also a member of and has recorded with the Festival Consort, which released Renaissance Glory: Christmas with the Festival Consort in 2006. He lives here in San Francisco…just a few blocks from our meeting place.
