Meet the Musicians

Dorothy Barth began playing violin during childhood. She discovered early music and the recorder after earning her music degree  from Stanford University. She has arranged six volumes of English, Irish, and Scottish traditional music for two instruments. Her music articles have appeared in Portland Bride and Groom, Weddings in Houston, Renaissance Magazine, American Recorder, The Canadian Music Teacher, Music for the Love of It, Early Music America, Music Teacher Magazine (Australia), Classical Music (UK), Stringendo, and California Music Teacher. 

Bertram Barth comes to early music with a background in modern woodwinds and concert management for station WBUR FM in Boston. He performs on soprano, alto, tenor, and bass recorders. He has also had a long career as a psychotherapist. 

Bertram and Dorothy have played as a duo since 1996, performing first in Southern and Central California and later in Central California and the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2012 they returned to Southern California; their home is particularly convenient to the Temecula Wine Country venues. They have performed at weddings, special events, museums, and Renaissance Fairs throughout California. In 2015 Bertram and Dorothy recorded all six of Dorothy's volumes of traditional music as digital CDs, available under the Kammeraderie label through CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other digital and streaming outlets.

They also perform as part Tea Rose Consort with recorder player Christine Love and guitarist Gary Love. 

Christine Love

Christine Love grew up in Illinois and began music training at a young age. Daughter of a music teacher, she was first trained on brass instruments and eventually voice. She participated in various instrumental and vocal ensembles throughout her college years and earned her music degree in voice performance in Chicago.  Since college, she has maintained an active musical life by participating in choirs, small ensembles, and solo voice performances. Her love for the beauty and intricacy of early music led her to the recorder, and she now performs as a member of the Tea Rose Consort.
