Baroque music specialists, the Brook Street Band (flute/recorder, violin, cello & harpsichord), ‘play with zest and style’ [Richard Wigmore, BBC]. They include in their balanced programme Handel’s earliest version of the famous Water Music suites, drawn from part-books now housed in Christ Church library.

Named after the London street where Handel lived, the award-winning Brook Street Band has established itself as one of the country’s foremost interpreters of his music. The Band regularly broadcasts for the BBC and has performed and taught extensively at prestigious British and European Festivals and at UK concert venues including Wigmore Hall, St. John’s Smith Square and The Maltings, Snape.

The Brook Street Band: Lisete da Silva Bull – baroque flute/recorder, Rachel Harris – baroque violin, Tatty Theo – baroque cello, Carolyn Gibley – harpsichord
