Thanksgiving Theremin: Handel’s “As When the Dove,” by Peter Pringle

Pringle’s dedication is absolutely admirable.

From his description:

There is a lot of very fast fingering and some extended baroque trills in this piece which are hard to see because they tend to become a blur on a video screen. I tried to get camera angles that would show as much as possible of the technique involved in case there are some theremin enthusiasts out there who are interested in this kind of music.

The theremin I am playing is a Moog Etherwave Pro which has been modified with an EPVM1345 module created by French engineer, Thierry Frenkel. I have to say that I got as much of a kick out of playing the harpsichord on this piece as I did out of playing the theremin!
