"Throughout my career and, I am happy to say, for ever-increasing numbers of singers today, period instruments have been a joy and a vital necessity, in our engagement with so much of our long musical past.  It is horrifying now to see all this under threat, so hearty thanks to Continuo Foundation for coming to the rescue!"

 continuo n. – in baroque music, the continuo (or basso continuo) instruments were used to support the harmony and to hold the ensemble together.
