Philip Thorby

Philip Thorby is well known as one of the country's leading performers and teachers in the field of Renaissance and Baroque music. He is founder and Director of the Renaissance ensemble Musica Antiqua of London, which has remained at the forefront of research-based performance of early sixteenth-century music.

As a recorder player, Philip's interests range widely. Two areas of special interest are sixteenth-century divisions (elaborate instrumental works based on vocal originals) and the music of early eighteenth-century London.

Until recently, Philip was Professor of Recorder and Senior Fellow in Early Music at Trinity College of Music. He teaches widely in England and abroad.


About the course

The course is aimed at advanced players who would like to learn about playing music from facsimile and a very limited prior knowledge of facsimile is necessary.  For light relief, there will also be some playing sessions using conventional notation!

The course will start at 2.30pm on Monday 20th and will finish at 11.30am on Friday 24th February.  Off road car parking is available from Monday morning if you want to arrive early and explore Lyme.


Prices are as follows:

Single occupancy    £480

2 players, sharing    £375 each

Couple sharing, one playing    £615

A £75 deposit is required per person on booking, with the balance to be paid at least one month before the course.
