BYRD – ROUND TABLE

Imagine a dinner party where your host passes round antique leatherbound music manuscripts and says, “You’re singing tenor!” Then around the table one voice after another begins to sing from the ancient Dow Partbooks.

Since the dawn of history, the human voice and the act of singing have been intrinsically linked with storytelling and the acquisition of culture. For their debut performance at UKARIA, The Song Company presents a beautiful selection of a cappella repertoire, framed by the sumptuous polyphony of William Byrd and his friends, who shared this music over 400 years ago from partbooks around the table in town tavern and country house, no doubt with candles, wine, much laughter and bonhomie!
