“Terrific music-making, led by that force of nature Jacqueline Shave” The Times

The musicians brought together by the wonderful violin player Jackie Shave form a string quartet and a flute player. They are playing music from across the centuries which celebrates the natural world. QUEEN GWENDOLEN was a legendary ruler of ancient Britain, some 3,000 years ago. She was the daughter of the King of Cornwall and defeated her husband King Locrinus in battle at the river Stour, the dividing line between Cornwall and the rest of Britain. She was a powerful woman who healed a fractured Britain with her rule. Five powerful and gifted women musicians make up this group named after her:
