This week's free download is the first movement of Nicolaus à Kempis's Symphony à 4 No. 1 Op. 12, played by In Echo, directed by cornettist Gawain Glenton. The piece is taken from the album 'Music in a Cold Climate: Sounds of Hansa Europe', which received four stars for performance and five stars for recording in the June issue of BBC Music Magazine.

Little is known about Kempis. A composer active in Brussels in the mid-17th century, he was nominated as organist of the Cathedral of St Michael and St Gudula around 1626.

Gawain Glenton was raised in a musical family and played a number of instruments before choosing the cornetto. He earned his degree from Manchester University and collaborated with many period ensembles before founding his own consort, In Echo, with Kirsty Whatley. 

'This project is strikingly original on all fronts. It is the debut release of the group 'In Echo', founded in 2016 by cornettist Gawain Glenton. The band's members are budding Early Music stars from everywhere. Their programme is equally cosmopolitan,' writes Berta Joncus.
