overcome to limitations of the facilities acoustics...somewhat) my
preference would be for the live musicians, rather than the boombox.
One one hand, you have the live musicians, who can provide all sorts of
flexibility (song length, tempo, et cetera) - on the other hand there is the
boombox, with the sterility of a recorded performance.
I'm not suggesting that you crank the recorder consort up to 11 like Spinal
Tap, but there can be a middle ground... of course, like David, I would also
suggest more shawms <heh heh>
