Balfe, Michael - I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls - Video

I recently did a lunchtime concert in Romsey Abbey! :)

I really love this tune! It's taken from a 19th century light opera, The Bohemian Girl. Arrangement by Sinyoung Ahn.

Just wanted to share. (If you want to skip the spoken introduction, please scroll forward to 1:23)

Beautiful Lucy. It still remains one of my favourite tunes off your album.

B.t.w. I really like the tone of your guitar in this performance. Very nice indeed.

Thanks again Paul. Very nice to hear you're still listening to my CD. :D

The natural acoustics were very nice in the abbey, but I have to admit I added a little reverb afterwards, because my microphone didn't seem to pick this up properly. It was a bit far from my guitar; they only gave me a little stage, so the mic stand had to be on the floor. The mic in the middle of the picture, belonged to the abbey and was meant to be for my voice, only, but it picked up my guitar too.

Well done! I thought that was lovely.

Very nicely played. :bravo:
I liked your introduction too. I think it's always a good idea to give some context to the music you are playing - especially if it is an unfamiliar piece.

Yes, I plan my spoken introductions quite well, so thanks. I actually made the audience laugh, or rather Lewis Carroll did! :wink:

Here is a link. I think it's all right to post this? It's free to download.
