Thank you again!
Thanks I will double check to see if I remembered to fix the levels. Or maybe just a violin by itself is quiet!

A Lord rode out one sunny morn to view the meadows round, And spied a pretty country maid come tripping o’er the ground. Dismounting from his milk-white steed he said “Come kiss your Lord”. She trembling stood there and obeyed, poor girl, quite overawed. [‘Fie, fie, why not say no?’] He took this fair maid for a walk, her hand within his own; “I want to purchase your true heart: ‘tis you I love alone! I’ll make you happy. Take my purse, my ring, my watch so fine; And if you want still more from me, then speak and it is thine!” [‘Fie, fie, that sounds too good!’] “Kind sir” she said, “I pray take care; my brothers - they might see. And if they spread the tale about, what would become of me? Were they not working quite so nigh I fear that I might yield. Climb up upon that bank and see if they are in the field.” [‘Ha, ha, what happened then?’] Now as the Lord rose up to look, the maid to his dismay Leapt on his steed, and like the wind she quickly tore away. “I’ll go no more a-roving with you, kind sir” she cried. He stood there in a fearful rage: denied, and then defied! [‘Ha, ha, a pretty pass, the clever lass!’]

A Fugue on a Violin is not an easy task. Bach wrote several Fugues for the Violin in his solo Sonatas and Suites. This is the Fugue from the first Violin sonata in g minor. Recorded in The Hague on a freezing cold morning, getting snatches of silence between batches of roadwork from outside!

This Sonata Prima by Castello, is a prime example of Early Italian Baroque music. It is a little strange to our modern ears that are perhaps more accustomed to the sounds of the later High Baroque (like Bach, Handel and so forth).

This Adagio is the first movement from the a minor Sonata (BWV 1003). It is a dreamy wander through the key of a minor to arrive at the launching point for the following Fugue. Please enjoy this performance, made on a cold Dutch winter morning. There was much roadwork, so this had to be timed in between their drilling!

Biber's Crucifixion Sonata is the 10th in the set of 16 Mystery Sonatas that describe the stations of the cross of Jesus Christ. This sonata is performed on a scordatura (mistuned) violin, cello and harpsichord. For those with keen ears, there is an Easter egg in it. The perils of live recording! NOTE: This was earlier mistakenly uploaded onto my orchestra account instead of my personal account. It has been removed from Musica Poetica and replaced here.
