    As we are about half-way through, back to some classical music with Corelli's Concerto grosso in G minor, Op. 6, No. 8, known commonly as the Christmas Concerto.

    This performance is by the Freiburger Barockorchester. The last CD I bought was their recording of Bach's Orchestral Suites, which is excellent. They just seem to love what they are playing and inject so much life into it.

    I notice a lot of them are standing up. Does anyone happen to know whether this was common practice in the Baroque period? I couldn't find anything on the internet about this.
