We are an early music chamber ensemble of talented amateur musicians playing all voices of recorder from sopranino to contrabass as well as violas da gamba and harpsichord. We perform works from the early music period (1200 – 1800) as well as Christmas and folk music.

Rosewood appreciates the weekly rehearsal space provided for us by
