Secular and Religious Melodies from the American Recorder Society

Date
Sunday, March 6, 2011
Time
01:00 PM–04:00 PM
Secular and Religious Melodies from the American Recorder Society

Perhaps the earliest portrayal of a recorder appears in an eleventh-century carving on a stone pillar in the church at Boubon-l'Achambault, St George, France. Since 2009, musicians from the Baltimore region have played at the Walters Art Museum, celebrating this unique instrument.

Musicians from the American Recorder Society will play traditional medieval music throughout the museum. The musical selection will feature ancient recorder melodies that still continue to resonate today.

The American Recorder Society was founded in 1939 to enable recorder players to meet, improve their playing skills and publish editions of recorder music. In 1999, the Society celebrated six decades of service to its constituents.
