A man stands in centre singing with arms raised to chest and elbows spread, another sits on the floor playing a low harpsichord, with a bowl labelled 'Macaroni' by his foot; next to him a child in rags playing the violin; to the right an old man plays the cello and a woman sits holding a cloth over a baby on her lap while singing.
