Hear the wonderful Song Company in concert, sharing music from across the ages and spanning the globe, including some of the earliest songs by known authors in Western history! St Godric was a hermit and wrote this miniature using the English vernacular – almost a thousand years ago. The Galician-language Cantigas are toe-tapping stuff attributed to Alfonso The Wise. Wit and wisdom from the days of Shakespeare, virtuoso vocal fireworks from Denmark, Australia and New Zealand and some catchy tunes round off this stunning programme.
Featured non-Australian music: Farr, Weelkes, Gudmunsen-Holmgreen, Tomkins, Morley, Gibbons et al.
