] Here in DC the Folger Consort opened its '97-'98 season this Halloween. As 2 of the members are friends of mine, I got a chance to ask Tina Chancey, gambist, fiddler, & all-around bowed string player about this. She instantly said "Baroque", although she wasn't more specific. She added that she herself never used the arm style simply because her arms are too short to hold & play that way. (She does hold the rebec that way.)
That's so interesting that you know Tina--I know her a little too. If you see her again, tell her Jessamyn, the assistant editor at Strings, says hello through this roundabout route! We just ran a story of hers in our November issue about her commissioning of a dessus through a French luthier. Great piece.
