Hector is active as a performer of early chordophones of the lute family and as a musicologist. He has performed music ranging from the thirteenth-century Cantigas de Santa Maria to the Operas and Oratorios from the late baroque era. His research is focused on sixteenth-century performance practice issues as they relate to wider social and historical events. His most current work deals with music in English domestic circles, especially the Catholic families and their connections to the continent, and other research includes work on the Italian Frottola and the oral tradition that predated it. More broadly, Hector is interested in source studies, aspects of Renaissance music theory and analysis, and cross-fertilisation of musical practices within Europe. Hector alternates his research work with performances throughout Europe and the Americas.
