Of Animals, Birds and Other Things

Sunday 01st July 2018 at 7.00 pm 

Brympton House, Brympton D'Evercy, Nr. Yeovil. BA22 8TD

(By kind permission of Mr & Mrs Glossop)

 

A Summer entertainment of music with largely a fauna theme but a touch of flora and all helped along with strawberries and drinks.

Songs, choral and instrumental pieces about owls, swans, blue birds, deer, chickens, seals, insects, fish and primroses selected from four centuries of music, featuring madrigals by English, French and Italian writers, as well as music by Britten, Elgar, Stanford, Whitacre; folk-song arrangements; music for recorders and harpsichord, and mood music by Kodály and Delius.

The natural world has been a constant stimulus for composers to write shorter and lighter pieces.  Whether it is the call of the owl, the song of small birds, the colourful charm of the butterfly, the grace of the swan, the incessant chatter of the cicada and cricket or the amusing antics of hens, all have featured in composed music.

The perfect Summer evening - do join us.
