Helen Hooker’s Virtual Consorts

Including Byrd, Bach and Purcell

With so many recorder players missing their consort playing right now I’ve been busy creating some virtual consort resources.  I’ve created a new page on my website where I will host some consort music videos for you to join in with.  I plan to create a new one each week and anyone can download the files for offline use.  Please share the link with anyone you know who might be interested – these resources are open to all.

It occurs to me that some of you will be stuck at home without any other musicians to play with.  So I’ve created some backing tracks for you to play along with, RecorderBoppers for grown-ups if you like.  They’re free to download or you can play them from the website.  Each piece has a written recorder part plus backings at ‘performance’ and ‘rehearsal’ (slower) speeds.  Most playback software shows the duration of the recording in minutes and seconds which I’ve included on the recorder parts in case you need to start playback part way through the piece.
