Accolades for Hadden Disc

Published: 10 September 2009

The September issue of Gramophone magazine includes a glowing review of a new CD by Nancy Hadden, AHRC Research Fellow in the Creative and Performing Arts at Southampton.

Nancy's fellowship project focusses on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century music for the Renaissance flute, and this is the first recording to come out of her research. Recorded by Circa 1500 for the CRD label, the disc features music by German composers writing for small groups of instruments and voices during the Thirty Years War. It includes sacred works by Michael Praetorius, Heinrich Schütz, Johann Schein and Tobias Michael, all containing parts for one or two Renaissance transverse flutes. Nancy researched, edited and directed all the performances as well as playing the flute. According to the Gramophone reviewer, 'These are extraordinary performances, poised and delicate yet infused with passion and a real sense of yearning'.
