Recital Hall, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire

The spirited early music trio Blondel, featuring Emily Baines, Lizzie Gutteridge and Belinda Paul, performs medieval and renaissance music on a colourful collection of shawms, bagpipes, curtals and recorders.
Celebrating the natural world, and birds in particular, their programme reflects both the perfection of nature and the artistry of humans in imitating it.
