Taracea is the Spanish word for an inlaid decorative work of pieces of coloured wood. This craft was a source of inspiration for the recorder ensemble Seldom Sene in their choice of repertoire for their first CD: a juxtaposition of masterworks for 5 centuries, together forming a harmonious unity.

We find works by Renaissance masters Cabezon, Josquin, Tallis, Tye, we travel the Baroque with Holborne, Boismortier and Bach, we end up in the 20th century with Reger, Gheysen, Nasapoulou: a fascinating journey!

The Dutch ensemble Seldom Sene plays a wide variety of instruments, from the twittering sopranino to the deep sonority of the bass recorder, an immense spectrum of sounds.

Excellent and extensive liner notes by the artists are included, as well as biographies and photos.
