Of all the birds on Sunday 1st September 2019

The natural world, and birds in particular, provided a wealth of imagery and allegory for medieval and renaissance musicians, poets and artists. They provided a convenient cipher through which human dramas could be played out at a safe remove, and also served to illustrate the harmony of nature, in contrast to human suffering. Imitation birdsong was also a popular medium through which human musicians could display their virtuosity. This concert reflects both the perfection of nature and the artistry of humans in imitating it.
