It just goes to show that you can never have too much of a good thing

After our PDtP Victoria Special earlier this month it might have felt like overkill to give most of Wednesday’s Counterpint in the Cafe over to his music as well.

His stuff is of such quality, however, that our singers clearly couldn’t get enough of it.

(Having a couple of Bach Passion chorales and Gallus‘s Ecce quomodo moritur justus as a warm-up went down very well too.)

Thanks to all who came along and thanks to Travelling Through for hosting us once again.

In just over 3 hours’ time, the first set of spaces for our May Day Madrigal Special will become available via this link; the remaining spaces will go live tomorrow at 9am.

(NB: as it’s a bank holiday, we’ll be starting the session at the earlier time of 6pm.)

Don’t ask me what we’re singing as I have yet to do my homework, but whatever the works, they will be at the top end of the madrigal repertoire.

Which places them a bit below the average quality of anything non-madrigal. But still above most of Handel.

Cheers

Kevin

I am a classical music enthusiast and a lover of choral music in particular. I run the Polyphony Down the Pub social/singing night, probably the most thrilling singing-Renaissance-motets-in-the-backroom-of-a-pub experience you could ever hope to have.
