L’Esprit Baroque welcomes guest artists to celebrate all things recorder, from Medieval consort music to high Baroque chamber music!
L’Esprit Baroque proudly presents our fall concert, a program featuring our woodwind contingent. Our program will explore the variety and uses of the recorder family from the Medieval through the Baroque eras. In addition, we will hear two other woodwind instruments popular during the 17th century, the cornetto and the dulcian. We will present consort music from Medieval, Renaissance and early Baroque composers, some consort songs and an organ solo by William Byrd, a solo recorder sonata by J.B. Loeillet de Gant, a trio sonata by G.P. Telemann, a very unusual quartet sonata by J.J. Fux, and cantatas by G.F. Handel and A. Lotti. Come hear us play and sing in the intimacy of St. Wilfrid’s chapel while we share with you this smorgasbord of music!
