“Come, some music! Come, the recorders!”
commands Hamlet in Shakespeares well-known drama.
The recorder was a beloved and important instrument in the renaissance, maybe especially in England: The inventory after King Henry VIII listed 50 recorders. Today’s program presents music from the renaissance and baroque by the finest English composers: Antony Holborne, Thomas Morley, and Henry Purcell. A couple of Scottish songs are thrown in for measure. There will also be a duet by the French composer and woodwind virtuoso Jean Jacques Hotteterre, who belonged to a great family of musicians associated with the Grande Ecurie, who supplied ceremonial and recreational music for the “Sun King” and his court in Versailles.
