    The Woods So Wild
    The sweet song of the recorder has been used to imitate the sounds of birds and woodlands for hundreds of years, inspiring generations of musicians and composers. In this beautiful programme Fontanella is inspired by the sights, senses and sounds of nature, presenting a feast of music featuring the lark, nightingale and all the pleasures of the ancient “oken wood”. William Byrd’s famous setting Henry VIII ’s favourite song forms a backdrop to music from the thirteenth to the twenty first centuries, including music by Monteverdi, Marenzio, Purcell and Vivaldi, as well as some jazz arrangements and new sounds, featuring a large array of recorders of all shapes and sizes!

    An Afternoon Workshop at 4.30 – 5.45pm for recorder players of all ages will also be led by members of Fontanella. To book, please contact classicconcert@aol.com, giving details of your previous recorder playing experience.
