Original file reuploaded in mp4 in 2010. It's still worth a look to see what the XHA1 can do in low light.

The full title of this piece is "Squire Wood's Lamentation on the Refusal of his Halfpence" and it's what attracted me it. In the early 1700s, Ireland ran out of copper coinage and people were even being given "IOU" notes in lieu of their pay. In 1722 William Woods was given a commission to produce copper coinage for Ireland, but his coins were boycotted by the Irish, hence the title of the piece.

I decided on a very simple visual setting for this piece and recorded it in one take with additional cutaways afterwards.
