Louise spent a number of years as a leading member of the renowned Orlando Singers, Dorset Chamber
Opera, Ely Consort, Norwich Cathedral Consort and the Norfolk and Norwich festival chorus. Louise
graduated in Music from the University of East Anglia in 1998, where she had been the holder of the
Britten-Pears (96-97) and the Hansell Stevenson (97-98) Scholarships. Later, she achieved an MMus from
the University of Hull, specialising in Performance and Educational Composition, and an MBA from Keele
University, specialising in Educational Management. She was taught by Ross Winters, Professor of
Recorder at The Royal College of Music, and Pamela Thorby.

Recitals undertaken include some of the most beautiful venues in the world including Ely Cathedral,
Boston´s King´s Chapel and many college chapels in Oxford and Cambridge.  She has performed several
solo concerti with the Norfolk Baroque Ensemble, numerous festivals throughout the UK including the Cardiff Festival, Wirksworth Festival and the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Louise has performed Malcolm Arnold's Recorder Concerto at a special concert in the presence of the composer. Louise is in demand as a performer of 20th and 21st century music, as well as the more traditional repertoire, bringing a dazzling new piquancy, and indeed ethnicity, to the recorder's capabilities.
David lives in Cardiff, South Wales. He was educated at Christ College, Brecon, before
winning an Organ Scholarship to Peterhouse in Cambridge in 1995. He studied at
Cambridge for four years, gaining a degree in Music and directing Peterhouse Chapel Choir
as well as studying the organ under Peter Hurford and Anne Page. It was whilst at
Cambridge that David met Louise and they began performing together, debuting at the
Llangollen International Eisteddfod in North Wales in 1996.

Since leaving Cambridge David has pursued a varied musical life. He is currently organist
and choirmaster of All Saints Rhiwbina, Cardiff, and directs 'Voces Petrensium', a choir for
former singers of Peterhouse. He has accompanied choirs in many of the great UK
cathedrals. When not playing or conducting, David has even been known to sing, and can
frequently be spotted in the Bass section of choirs as diverse as the BBC National Chorus
of Wales and Llandaff Cathedral Choir.
Hiding behind the apparently respectable image of a Baroque recorder and harpsichord duo, Louise and David are on a
mission to entertain. Through a programme spanning centuries, they present highly charged performances of Baroque
masterpieces, virtuoso showstoppers, and repertoire in a variety of 20th Century and contemporary styles – with some
wholly original work thrown in for good measure. Combining serious musicianship with a thoroughly infectious sense
of fun, an evening with Baroquenroll promises musical satisfaction with a zesty twist of irreverence.
