• Short Summary

    The village of Tilford in Surrey holds a Bach Festival every year.

  • Description

    Tilford, Surrey.

    Shots of the village of Tilford with its river and the sign of the 'Barley Mow' pub. M/S of a group of musicians in discussion outside the church buildings. They begin to play, with Marta Eitler on violin, Dietrich Kessler on a viola da gamba, and Denys Darlow, Festival Director, conducting. Denys is also church organist.

    There are shots of houses in the village, one with a Tudor style front. The closing shots are of the river, panning up to the rustic looking wood and stone bridge. The vicar, Arthur Jaggs, is seen walking by.

    The "Barley Mow" pub is still open as of 2012, it's situated on Tilford Green, Tilford, Surrey.

    Dietrich Kessler is actually playing a viola da gamba rather than a viola (the chief difference being 6 strings rather than the usual 4).

    NOTE: The clip has a faulty running time (it always shows 0:00, and there's also a lack of manipulation of the clip whilst it's playing).
