The San Antonio Recorder Quartet

The San Antonio Recorder Quartet

The recorder was the dominant indoor woodwind instrument during the Renaissance, and sets of recorders were used to support a wide variety of music. This program explores the role of the recorder in 15th and 16th century music. Renaissance music was largely a vocal art, and a rich repertoire of secular and sacred music has survived. Recorders—made in sizes to match the ranges of the human voice—were used to support or replace voices in songs performed as court entertainment, and recorders were used in churches to support sacred music when an organ was not available. Recorders also provided music for dancing. The San Antonio Recorder Quartet will perform a variety of secular songs, sacred psalms, hymns, anthems, and dance music.
