Secular and Religious Melodies from the American Recorder Society

Sunday, March 25, 2012
01:00 PM–04:00 PM

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 recorder melodies from the Renaissance period, which is considered the zenith of the recorder instrument as well as some 19th century French music.

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.
