Gary Brooker Ensemble, Guildford Cathedral

BtP's soundcheck pictures (1)


We're stage right, looking across the strings to where the band is set up. Note the organ loft, top left of picture

You can see that the musicians are up on a platform except the double-bass player, nearest the camera

All the musical rehearsals took place with lighting crew swarming aloft the while

Behind the choir Henry Spinetti with felt beaters, just visible in one of the pelvic interstices

From the front: note the Perspex screen separating drums and strings; Matt Pegg grins to the photographer

Frank Mead, stage left, asks for a tad more vocal in his monitor mix. The screen behind shows the harp.

Andy Phillips is visible left, in front of his Chameleon musicians. From this viewpoint the other Andy is masked completely by the piano

From stage left: between Frank and Johnny Magner, two percussionists: Henry Spinetti and Graham Broad

Frank airs his flute, while Gary sings ... it was a hard afternoon's work on voice and piano. Occasional song words were spoken, not sung
