Those Philomel birds are at it again

IN celebration of St Cecilia, patron saint of music, the six sopranos, accompanied by theorbo, harpsichord and recorder will present a concert on the theme of female power, passion and spirit threaded through with echoes of ancient bird mythology.

Text and artwork by students from Marylebone Girls’ School will illustrate newly commissioned works by Janet Oates (with new text by poet Euan Tait), Sheena Phillips, Dominic McGonigal and Joel Jårventausta.

The programme also includes expressive songs by Francesca Caccini and Barbara Strozzi, virtuosic duets by Mazzocchi, and vibrant madrigals by Maddalena Casulana.
