Product details

Yet another disc from one of Australia's best choirs!

During their European tour in the early 1990s, the critics in Europe were quite ecstactic about the repertoire found on this recording.

Madrigals and drinking songs are part of the repertoire of this choir which enjoys an enviable international reputation. Features saucy rounds by Purcell, English folk songs including Vaughan Williams' 'Greensleeves ' and Percy Grainger's arrangements of 'Brigg Fair' and 'Irish tune from County Derry', beautiful interpretations of seven spirituals including 'I Can Tell the World', 'Wade in the Water' 'Ac–cent–tchu–ate the Positive' and 'Now is the Month of Maying'.
