Fontanella Recorder Consort

We absolutely adore the blended sound of our renaissance instruments which sound like a magnificent organ when played together, especially in church-like acoustics. We also enjoy playing new arrangements and introducing audiences to contemporary music, and finding ways to connect all these elements for a concert programme.

Tom Hammond, conductor

I think my role – which really is only actually needed when there are more musicians than could comfortably work as a chamber ensemble – is to passionately interpret the composer’s intentions by having a considered and researched view of the music, then organising and motivating the performers to achieve that.
