“Concerning Babell & Son”



Music composed, arranged and collected by Charles & William Babell


“Gems of ‘real’ recorder music”
The Recorder magazine

“This is a well-planned and varied concert of music from the Purcell/Handel hinterland … If the first three notes don’t make you sit up with a start you have the most unshockable ears in early music! … The Babells had, and the Trio Basiliensis have, excellent taste. This is much more than mere Tafelmusik.”
