We play for pleasure music from the medieval to the modern. We have a wider-than-ever repertoire and are experimenting with different styles. Many of the group are now able to play more than one instrument which gives us more versatility and we are producing a richer sound. With new members we are able to attempt more complicated arrangements.

We have added some German carols to our play list as well as lots of old favourites. Several of our pieces have been arranged by our own music maestro, Tom McCanna, including Seeking Myfanwy, Gaudete, Dear Lord and Father of Mankind and Yesterday. Arrangements by another practising recorder player are always the best as they understand the quirks of all the different instruments. Other pieces have been requested by members of the consort and the great variety keeps us all happy.

During the year we perform at different venues including the Masters House. By way of thanks for allowing us to use the Chapter House for meetings, we played before and after a service at the Church in November.

We can welcome experienced players at any stage but beginners should contact one of the leaders to discuss possibly joining in.
