A short Biography
Paul Neville: - Viol, Recorders Classical Guitar.
Paul is a multi-instrumentalist playing Cornett, guitar, recorders, treble and bass viols. He moved into Early Music through contact with the Hanover Music Group, a community organisation supplying music for all - with an emphasis on Early Music and instruments. He also performs early classical guitar music and uses the guitar as a consort instrument. As a co-founder of the Pastores Ensemble, he has been involved with many local events including concerts with Brighton Consort and for New Music Brighton, as well as in the Ensemble’s first sell-out concert in Brittany. He was also a member of the Dunstable Doysters: performing in Lincoln Cathedral, Southwell Minster and Lambeth Palace. Studies with Jane Ryan (a bass viol player who performed with David Munrow) led him to explore solo bass viol music- particularly English and French repertoire- from copies of the original music (Facsimile).
