Ah, the cello is such an expressive instrument, rich in timbre, and quite versatile. I have a recording of some Mantras chanted by Tibetans monks accompanied by cello. It so fits the character of the chants — I just love it! I have taken a few cello lessons, although my best and most favorite instrument is the viola. I hope to take more lessons in the future to see how well I can do . . . and, playing the cello is quite different from playing violin and viola.
