Nota Bene viol consort USA

Since 2016 the musicians of Nota Bene viol consort are playing with Renaissance viol bows made out of Acacia wood.

Recently they recorded the concert in the Slosberg Recital Hall, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA USA. We are lucky to share a moment of this beautiful event with Pietro Vinci’s music on Sonetti Sirituali.
