Beneath a pale moon

Join BLOCK4 Recorder quartet on a journey through an enchanted forest, from the medieval to today

Welcome, weary travellers. Come close, and gather to the fire. This is a time for tales old and new, told by only the light of the pale moon as we wait for the crow of the cockerel and the dawning of another day. Come close, and listen to the tale I will tell, one full of magic and mystery….

BLOCK4 are a British-European quartet whose dynamic programming aims to introduce audiences of all types to the versatility and unique sound world of the recorder. Storytelling and narrative has always been at the centre of the group’s programming, allowing audiences new to the Recorder to experience the varied repertoire in new and exciting ways. Their debut recording Beneath a Pale Moon is no different. A story written by writer, theatre maker and folk artist Essa Flett guides the listener through the album, depicting a journey through an enchanted wood, where magic lurks around every corner.
