One thought from this concert: I appreciate the rationale behind using only period and period-replica equipment, but maybe it’s time for a miniature early-music Manhattan project to integrate a little bit of modern technology into the instruments so they don’t have to be re-tuned every ten minutes. Especially in a long work like the Membra Jesu Nostri, it’s tough to maintain a suspended mental involvement with everyone stopping between movements for peg-turning.
