‘Vocal music from German-speaking lands: rarified, rustic, tender, profound and just plain gorgeous’
Canberra’s small but beautifully formed fullrange male-voice consort brings you a Germanic selection from mediaeval times to the Baroque era: you’ll hear Neidhart von Reuenthal’s celebration of Spring, Isaac’s hypnotically beautiful take on the Song of Songs, the angular elegance of Walther and Vulpius, songs of love and loss from Schein and Othmayr; and something rude ‘n’ rural from Senfl.
Not to mention Praetorius, Bach, Lassus and Oswald von Wolkenstein: and note that this may well be your only chance this year to take in some Gumpelzhaimer.
David Yardley: countertenor
David Mackay: tenor
George Brenan: tenor
Ian Blake: bass
It’s at All Saints Church, on the corner of Bonney Street and Cowper Street, Ainslie
