It is a rare treat to hear the sublime sound of a viol consort in Sydney. The Marais Project, Sydney's best known viola da gamba-based ensemble, is proud to present the recently formed professional viol consort, “Seaven Teares” in concert - "Seaven Teares" being the alternate title for John Dowland's famous viol consort piece, "Lachrimae". Joined by upcoming soprano, Susie Bishop, “Seaven Teares” will present music by Bull, Dowland and Morales along with a selection of beautiful songs that highlight the unique tone-world of the viol consort. The concert will also feature the world premiere of a new work for viol consort and bass clarinet by distinguished jazz artist and composer, Paul Cutlan, commissioned with the assistance of Father Arthur Bridge and Ars Musica Australis.
Featured non-Australian music: Dowland, Morales, Lully, John Bull
