Berlioz Historical Brass

This group was inspired by a Boston Symphony Orchestra performance of Berlioz's 'Messe Sollenelle,' in which the serpent, a period instrument, was included in the orchestra.  Since then, they have had an interesting aim as a group: to further the study and understanding of instruments from this period, rather than searching for venues in which to perform.

They have collaborated on some recordings, listed on their website, and have given lectures and have even helped to create their own editions of music that includes the instruments that they study.
