The Wind in the Weald Quintet is made up almost entirely of members of the Cranbrook Symphony Orchestra who enjoy playing music together from the classical period to the 20th century. The quintet meets regularly to rehearse and to perform in churches, gardens and National Trust Houses. They last played for the Friends’ Lunchtime Concert in 2016.

On the London Reviewer website in May 2013, Alexa wrote about the Quintet’s performance at Ightham Mote in May 2013:‘Lovely period music (that could suit the many times of Ightham Mote as it has been around since at least the 1300s). Mozart and other pieces were played and the group were in tune and sounded mellifluous together. Instruments played included a flute, clarinet and others.  …  many [visitors] stopped and listened in a magical daze either for a little while or a long while. Much appreciated chamber music.'
