The Company
The Renaissance Workshop Company Ltd. (RWC) is the world’s largest specialist manufacturer of historical instruments for early music, all based on existing originals or relevant iconography,  meticulously researched and handmade in our own workshops by a small team of dedicated craftsmen who have many years experience.

The Renaissance Workshop Company is justly proud of its wide range of historically accurate musical instruments, covering mediaeval, renaissance and baroque periods, representing over 1000 years of European musical history and culture. (more)

 


The Catalogue

RWC manufactures, for historical performance, a wide range of faithful reproductions of mediaeval, renaissance and baroque musical instruments including keyboards (clavichords, harpsichords, spinets, organs...), stringed instruments (harps, fiddles, lutes, viols, hurdy-gurdies, psalteries, guitars...), windcaps (crumhorns, cornamusen, bagpipes...), natural reeds (curtals, bassoons, racketts, shawms, sordunes...), brasswinds (natural trumpets) and percussion (drums, timpanies, tabors, nakers, timbrels...) (more)

History

Mr. Askey has been involved in running the early music business since he joined J. Wood & Sons Ltd. back in 1972. He managed Woods Bradford music shop, 'The Early Music Shop' for many years and helped to... (more)
