From minstrel to musician
The recorder quintet Fontanella gave a concert at the summer school this evening, titled ‘From minstrel to musician’, featuring music from the reigns of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. For much of the programme they used a set of specially made recorders by the English maker, Adrian Brown. I took a few photos during the concert but at the interval I made a beeline for their recorders to take some arty shots of them. They’ve suffered a little from being taken at ISO 1600 but I was so take with these beautiful instruments that I couldn’t resist posting them.
