A bitesized informal concert for everyone in the Heart of the City

Take some time out of your Saturday morning, have a coffee and zone out for 45 minutes in the hidden gem that is St Matthew's, away from the hubbub of the city.

The concert at St. Matthew’s will include some of our favourite music for trio from the French High Baroque and arrangements of arias from some of Handel’s operas, a wonderful sonata for two recorders also from the French Baroque. There will also be a chance to hear some Michael East Viol trios arranged for two Tenors and a Bass Recorder, so we hope to be able to offer something for everyone!

Crescent Recorders was formed in February 2019 at the monthly Sheffield Branch meeting of the Society of Recorder Players, (SRP), with the hope of playing intimate chamber music on a regular basis; a hope that has been successfully realised, despite the pandemic. The group performs in various combinations of players and instruments, from duets to quartets, and from Sopranino to Contra Bass, playing an equally varied repertoire of musical styles and periods, although they are most at home when performing the music of the Baroque and Renaissance eras.
