The Globe - Can we have your attention please!

The Globe - Can we have your attention please!
This is the orchestra that opened the show at the Globe. The trombone is a bit of an anachronism, I think, but the guy on the right is playing a shawm. (I think it's a shawm - and if it isn't it should be. There should be someone there with a sackbut as well!) A shawm is a kind of wooden trumpet with a reed in it - ancestor of a clarinet.
