A Consort Project in these Distracted Times

It is a difficult time for all of us at the moment. Musicians are working hard to come up with new ways of making music to cheer us along in these socially distant times.

Here is a fun way to keep up your viol consort playing whilst discovering satisfying new repertoire:

Consort music minus one – a project for these distracted times

We’re all missing viol consort playing but David has come up with an ingenious idea. He has made it possible for all of us to play along with him in a new series of four part consort pieces taken from an accessible manuscript of 16th century German songs. For a small fee you can download scores, complete performance tracks and ‘minus-one’ tracks. For more information see below, visit David’s website or email him directly to order.Consort music minus one intro
