Friends of ECSE


"The English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble has been around since 1993, and has established itself as one of the most respected specialists in this musical field, and in brass instruments of the period in particular."
Dominy Clements - Music Web International.


As we approach our 25th anniversary in 2018 we would like to invite you, our many friends and fans, to get to know us, the music we play and the things we do, better. You’ve seen us in concert..... but what goes on behind the scenes?
Now is your chance to find out more!

Maybe a regular payment won’t suit you. Speak to us about supporting specific investments we desperately need. These range from ordering microfilms of manuscripts and prints from far-flung libraries, funding new editions of un-performed music, to sponsoring ECSE recitals and recordings.
