Read up about the Linarol Consort’s Festival concert on 29 April

There’s lots of fascinating information on the blog on the Linarol Consort’s website about the music they’ll be playing on Sunday 29 April in our 2018 festival – take a look!  The Consort’s director David Hatcher has edited a manuscript from the library of the Fugger family, containing music from the court of Maximilian I, for their programme “Will no-one sing?”

Rachel Podger – new review

“Podger plays with a remarkably consistent serenity and poise, the virtuosity unaffected, almost unnoticeable.  But, there is an underlying rhythmic vigour, which gives shape and coherence to the fluent elaborations and explorations which run, dance, fly and exclaim with unwavering eloquence.”

So says Claire Seymour of Seen and Heard International in a review of Rachel Podger’s collaboration with Voces8, A Guardian Angel.  Look out for further performances this autumn – and come and hear Rachel play some of the music in the programme, including the wonderful Biber Passacaglia at her recital for us on Friday 27 April.
