fruitwood, l 690mm × d 70mm. More details

Recorders flourished during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. They were made in sets comprising different voices, as in a choir: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. As the 18th century wore on, the recorder became old-fashioned. Except for this rare tenor recorder by the famous Peter Bressan, all those shown here were made in the Netherlands.
