"What makes the recorder beloved by faeries? Just like the faeries, the recorder is ancient, dating back to a time when all the world was green, when it was easy for faeries to hide and play their elf songs unseen and uninterrupted. The recorder.... is delicate and nimble and slightly mischievous just like the faeries themselves. It is stealthy and hides easily in a pocket or beneath a faerie's wing. It is lightweight and travels well; thus it can emerge in unexpected places. Yet its songs may cast their spell across heather, woods, and glen and speak even to the birds."

(from Dorothy Barth's 2008 article, Finding the Faerie's Voice, published in the  Autumn 2008 issue of Faerie Magazine! )

Let flutes of fancy sprinkle their sound magic at your woodland wedding!  Predecessor of the modern silver flute, the recorder dates back to Medieval times flutes of fancy's recorders are crafted of fine ebony, rosewood, and boxwood. The recorder is highly portable and therefore well suited to woodland venues. Your wedding music will be played on two recorders and will include Celtic, Medieval, and Renaissance selections as well as music from Finding the Faerie's Voice, Dorothy Barth's original music for a woodland wedding.
