Dramatic, choreographed scenes. Virtuosic solo performances. Vitality, passion, humour and wit as music, poetry and prose are woven into a seamless tapestry of sound and narration.
This is a programme with a difference.
“One of the most gifted and more musically intelligent of all the early music groups
currently before the public.” – Musical Opinion
