Stanton Waits is a group of friends and recorder players. We rehearse in the small village of Stanton, just outside of Ashbourne. In medieval times, the Waits were municipal musicians. Our group play recorders of many sizes and music of many kinds. We have played previously at St Oswald’s Church, Sudbury Hall, Ashbourne Town Hall and Library and further afield, at Astley Castle, the Gothic Temple in Stowe Landscape Gardens and Cawood Castle.
GF Handel was a visitor to this area and in anticipation of the Ashbourne Treasures exhibition we celebrate his music playing “Mostly Handel”.
