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. He has recorded the entire manuscript, more that 75 pieces, of the Gassenhawerlin und Reutterliedlin manuscriptFor 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.
