Recorder & Harpsichord Recital.
John Bence and friends remember Peter Crump with a recital on the harpsichord owned by him played by John Bence with recorder players from The Longslade Consort.

Peter Crump was indisputably one of Leicesterís leading composers. His music was (and is) performed throughout the country and occasionally broadcast on Radio Three. He had wide ranging tastes and from its inception, was an ardent supporter of the Leicester Early Music Festival. In fact he bequeathed his fine harpsichord to the festival and this instrument is now based at St. Margaretís Church. The festivalís all-year-round successor, the Leicester Early Music Association, has instigated an annual Peter Crump Concert. and we are delighted to be able to use Peterís harpsichord for this concert.
