The title, CONSORTIUM, is taken from the term “consort” referring to a consort of recorders. “Consortium” consists of 5 movements, one for each recorder in the basic consort with piano. The movements are: 1. Announcement, for bass recorder; 2. Little Bird, for sopranino recorder; 3. Perpetuum Mobile, for alto recorder; 4. Meditation, for tenor recorder; and The Fugue, for soprano recorder. Consortium was written for mutual enjoyment during a visit from my friend, John Jensen. The recorded performance by me and John was made in my living room with the assistance of Sara Sterns, recording engineer and velodromist extrodinaire.
