Fontanella Recorder Consort give two concerts as part of Hertfordshire Festival of Music celebrating the 350th anniversary of Hertford's Friends Meeting House.

Drawing on their vast collection recorders, all manner of shapes and sizes from the tiny garklein to the great sub-contra bass, Fontanella will bring to life this Delightful Companion, aptly named by Robert Carr in the seventeenth century.

From a virtuosic concerto by John Baston to divisions on the famous Greensleeves, Henry Purcell’s Three Parts upon a Ground and hits from The Catch Club, this concert promises to paint a colourful musical landscape!
