North American Virtual Recorder Society: England’s Golden Age of Consort Music with Tish Berlin
Saturday, March 25 at 2PM, ET
Join Tish Berlin to learn why the 16th century was the golden age for recorder consort music in England. Berlin will lead an exciting playing session featuring the works of William Mundy, who was regarded by Thomas Morley as among the top English composers of the era; composer and organist, John Taverner;
Robert Parsons, a master of polyphonic writing for choirs; and William Daman a musician in the royal household of Elizabeth I, where his six-recorder consort played dance music; among other surprises.
Tish Berlin teaches recorder and coaches ensembles in California and at workshops around the country, including the Amherst Early Music Festival, and the Oregon Coast Winds and Waves recorder workshop. Ms. Berlin performs with the Farallon Recorder Quartet, Calextone, Bertamo Trio, and the recorder duo Tibia. She has performed with the Carmel Bach Festival and the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra as well as other ensembles. Ms. Berlin received a master’s degree in early music performance practices from Case Western Reserve University and her mentors and teachers have included Inga Morgan, Frances Blaker, Saskia Coolen, Marion Verbruggen, Carol Marsh, and Ross Duffin.
