The Original 2018 Easter Festival
The word original can be applied to ‘authentic’ as well as ‘new’. Four Winds Sunday program has both.
We are excited that The Song Company – arguably Australia’s finest vocal ensemble – will be starting Sunday with an authentic performance of music from the time of Elizabeth I’s Court. The songs they will perform were first written down in the late 16th Century between Oxford and London and sung from part-books placed around a table – whether that be in a country house or a tavern. The music is united by an invisible pulse – the “tactus”, a Latin word meaning something touched or felt. Whether singing or listening, the experience is one of an unfolding narrative – through a gorgeous landscape of harmony – enabling us to connect with the innermost feelings hidden in this music from over 400 years ago.
Here is an example….
“O lord let thy servant Elizabeth”
