Lunchtime Concert – My Spirit Sang All Day

May 12, 2023 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Wilbye Quartet
Four voices got together during Covid restrictions and have continued singing since then, performing music both sacred and secular in the South West.

Our programme for Spring 2023 is a survey of English Song spanning seven centuries, from Greensleeves and the first known round, through the Renaissance period to the late 19th – early 20th century.

The richness and scope of English song repertoire through the centuries presents a huge problem for the Quartet: how to limit the programme to under an hour? The result of many hours of trying out pieces, we have cherry-picked some of the best known and loved songs through the ages, as well as a few of our personal favourites.

Though the list can’t be comprehensive we have tried to present a thumbnail sketch, with music by Henry VIII, Byrd, Dowland, Wilbye, Tallis and Purcell to Elgar, Finzi, and Vaughan Williams and others.

Drinks will be available before the concert.

There will be a retiring collection in aid of St Margaret’s Hospice and St John’s Church.
