Description

The Woods So Wild

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, Janequin, Marenzio, Purcell and Vivaldi, as well as some jazz arrangements and new sounds

A UK-based recorder quintet specialising in historical performance, new music and education projects, Fontanella entertains audiences of all ages in a variety of programmes designed to bring the history of this familiar and versatile instrument to life.

'What was remarkable was the quality of their ensemble playing. You can see them constantly communicating, with eye contact and body language, so you can see how it is being done, but it still seems like a bit of magic…’ The Recorder Magazine


please note that we have corrected the ticket price for this concert to £10

Fontanella will be following their lunchtime concert with a special free family concert - "If you go down to the woods today"...do stay, and bring children of any age!
