The original Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen was formed in London in 1678 by Roger L'Estrange and Thomas Britton and a group of the same name was still giving concerts in the middle of the eighteenth century. This new ensemble of has been formed under the same name and whose central repertoire is drawn from the collections of manuscripts and prints associated with the original ensemble and London concert life in general, as well as other fascinating corners of baroque repertoire. Typically the ensemble consists of around 4 violins, 1 va, 1 cello, 1 bass, harpsichord/organ and theorbo/lute. We are also sometimes joined by oboes, flutes and even singers.
