An evocation of London’s musical landscape, from the Middle Ages to the time of Grinling Gibbons, with pieces by William Byrd, Matthew Locke, Henry Purcell and Antony Holborne.

This concert pays tribute to the London guilds, and in particular, to the livery companies of Turners and Drapers (Gibbons’ own). The Turners have a long-standing relationship with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, having commissioned a set of recorders for the use of its students. These instruments, based on medieval models, will feature in the concert.

Programme devised and directed by Professor Ian Wilson.

Performed by the Guildhall Recorder Consort: Julien Harman-Evans, Elizabeth McCall, George Meeks, Olivia Petryszak, Thomas Pickering, Charlotte Stocks, Faelan Sydenham.
