'A Family Likeness' was written for The Society of Recorder Players in the UK and was a great success at its premiere in 2008. . The music is characteristically that of Gavin Bryars and would be an ideal introduction to his unique sound world of slow moving pure harmonies and melodic ostinati that evoke expansive landscapes. . This significant addition to modern recorder repertoire is a fantastic concert piece which is both accessible and musically rewarding, it can be performed by either six individual players or a larger group with multiple players per part.
