Madrigals and Merriment

  • St Sepulchre-without-Newgate Holborn Viaduct London, England, EC1A 2DQ United Kingdom (map)
This evening’s concert features two fantastically contrasting choral ensembles - both a cappella, and both completely different! Waltham Madrigals bring us a madrigal menagerie, looking at the birds and the bees in English part songs; and Sound take us on a musical journey through folk songs, pop and more.
  • Dainty Fine Bird
  • Sweet Suffolk Fowl
  • All creatures now
  • Flora gave me fairest flowers
  • The Bluebird
  • Sweet honey-sucking bees
  • Adieu ye city-prisoning towers
  • The Silver Swan
  • It was a time when silly bees could speak!
