The Rose Consort of Viols

The Rose Consort of Viols

Thursday 26th March, 7:30pm

Sing we and chant it: music from renaissance England ‘apt for voices and viols’
The Rose Consort of Viols and University of Huddersfield Chamber Choir
Director John Bryan

When the Italian madrigal arrived to be ‘Englished’ by composers like Morley around 1600, it joined a wealth of music designed for voices and viols, including consort songs from choirboy plays and verse anthems. We explore something of this varied repertory, from homegrown madrigals by Weelkes and sacred music by Byrd and Gibbons to Latin motets by Peter Phillips, whose career took him to work in Brussels.
