“The performance was fantastic.  A very talented band of specialist musicians” 

Stafford Gatehouse Theatre.


Eric Moulder formed the group just over a decade ago with the aim of bringing a fresh and energetic approach to the popular dance and ballad repertoire of the late renaissance period.  


The members of Piva have wide and diverse musical backgrounds and between them they have experience in playing renaissance, jazz, classical, baroque, folk and roots music.  They bring all of these diverse musical influences  together and fuse them with their knowledge of renaissance music and instruments.  The result is a cohesive approach and attitude towards the renaissance repertoire: Piva’s aim is to be faithful to the music of the period whilst adding their own innovative arrangements and interpretations.  


All members of the group are multi-instrumentalists - playing up to 40 different instruments at a gig!


Not only do Piva play the instruments - they also make them!  Three members of Piva are professional instrument makers.  


“A wonderful evening’s entertainment - inspirational music making”.
