Once again the Woodroffe Early Music Orchestra has been delighting National Trust crowds with their lively music which is suited to the beautiful historical settings that only the National Trust can provide.

This time the ensemble of instruments involved a rebec, played by Felix Thompson and a bass viola da gamba which was played by Flora McIlroy, both Year 7. The group performed a number of pieces in the beautiful sunshine at Barrington Court on Saturday 14 June alongside some original music composed by Zack Chantler in Year 8.

Barrington Court is a beautiful Tudor Manor House. Nestled in the heart of Somerset it boasts some of the most beautiful gardens in England and receives many thousands of visitors each year. The young musicians soon became an equally popular attraction with many visitors as they explored the House and its surroundings.

Dan Morgan, Early Music Orchestra lead, said “The students had a wonderful time and I would like to say well done to them all and a huge thank you. I would especially like to thank all parents and supporters for helping with this very successful event. We look forward to returning next year.”
