Over the past thirty-six years, the Galliard Trio has established a reputation for presenting programmes of great variety. Its repertoire is wide, often adding harpsichord and bassoon to perform arrangements of music from the eighteenth as well as the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. On this occasion the Trio is performing piano and wind trios from each of these centuries. The members live within a short distance of each other in North London, but the Trio performs regularly throughout southern England in churches, arts centres, country houses and schools. It gives concerts for music clubs and charities such as the National Trust, church restoration funds and conservation groups. This is its first visit to St Bride's. The Trio has recorded some of its favourite pieces on two compact discs. These are on sale today. If you would like the Galliard Trio to perform for a club or charity of interest to you, please contact Andrew Morris on 020 7689 2397 or email andrewmorris@msn.com.
