Info

Martyn Harry’s Suite of 19 movements scored for 4 cornetts, 4 sagbutts, harpsichord and organ. It is a surreal regal homage to Robert Schumann s Scenes from Childhood . Generally speaking each movement depicts a department or member of the Royal Household roughly 500 hundred years ago, at a fictitious time when a young child ascends to the throne…

“Hats off to HMSC and Martyn Harry for this brave venture … an extremely witty piece of writing, as is the disc as a whole … This disc is one that itself rewards repeated listening.” -Steven Cassidy, Early Music Review February 2013
