The practice of "consort" playing reached its peak during the Renaissance period. Instruments such as viol, lute, violin and recorder were grouped into families and available in different sizes, these groups were called "consort".
The abundant and extremely rich literature dedicated to the consort playing in England as well as the impressive private collection of Henry VIII gathering no less than 70 recorders of different sizes, viola da gamba and violins testify to the great enthusiasm that this practice aroused.
Consort Brouillamini heads for England with his new program The Woods so Wild recently recorded and invites you to travel over 150 years of music: from William Mundy to Matthew Locke, from Hugh Ashton to Henry Purcell.
