Music for the Queen of Scots (DXL 1144)



The Flautadors are known for their diverse programmes of music spanning over 800 years. They are continually expanding the repertoire for recorder quartet by arranging, commissioning and promoting new works that challenge the players and extend the technical boundaries of the instrument.

This CD takes the listener on a journey through the life of Mary, Queen of Scots and features 16th century Scottish gems, French renaissance dances and glorious polyphony performed on a beautiful consort of recorders made by Thomas Prescott.

The Flautadors are joined for this recording by the percussionist Corrina Silvester, who performs regularly in London’s west end theatre productions and is in much demand in the fields of classical, jazz, world and folk music.
