The Song Company presents Byrd Round Table: Berry

Thursday 15 March 2018 to Friday 23 March 2018

Australia Premier vocal ensemble is presenting their first program of the year, Byrd Round Table.

Featuring songs by one of the European masters of Renaissance music William Byrd, The Song Company will transport you back through 400 years of history, soaring through the gorgeous harmonic landscape to bring you to a country house. On a round table in this country house William Byrd and his friends singing from partbooks and created musical artistry. This lost art of partbooking has been found; The Song Company gives life, heart and vigour to some of most beautiful music of 16th Century Oxford and London.

Popular during the Renaissance and Baroque period, partbooking is a format of hand written music containing the part for a single voice or instrument. William Byrd and his friends and now The Song Company will demonstrate how partbooking creates a communal and invisible pulse that beats to keep each part in perfect harmony.
