Dulcis Venti recorder quartet (director Stephen Watkins) with harpsichordist Francis Knights
Discovering that there was no existing repertoire for recorder quartet with harpsichord, we challenged composers around the world to rectify the situation. In this concert we present the first ever performance of works for this mysteriously neglected ensemble; beautiful and engaging pieces in which the sweetness and coolness of the recorder encounters the bright, clean sound of the harpsichord.
