    Blondel: Of All the Birds

    13.15

    St Mary-at-Hill
    Lovat Lane
    Eastcheap
    London
    EC3R 8EE

    Birds and the Natural World in Medieval and Renaissance Music. Featuring music by Senleches, Vaillant, Baldwin, Weelkes and others, with Emily Baines, Lizzie Gutteridge and Belinda Paul.

    The natural world, and birds in particular, provided a wealth of imagery and allegory for medieval and renaissance musicians. They were frequently enlisted to enact the dramas found in human life, at a safe remove, but also served to illustrate the harmony of nature. Imitation of birdsong was also used as a means for human musicians to display their virtuosity and this programme will depict both the harmonious balance of nature and the artistry of humans in imitating it. Featuring performances on recorders, shawms, bagpipes and more!

    Ensemble Tempus Fugit: Calcutta

    19.30

    St. Mary’s Kemptown, Brighton

    Performance part of Brighton Refugee Week

    By 1780, the East India Company had transformed Calcutta into a small English city. Musicians travelled from London to India, bringing the music of Corelli and Handel with them. Others played their harpsichords with local groups of Indian classical musicians, and transcribed Indian music into European notation.

    Explore music from the streets and soirées of a young Calcutta, where performers wound melodies from many cultures into their own traditions. Ensemble Tempus Fugit melds this unusual combination of period music and Indian song with shadow puppetry, dance and drama to tell a story of a traveller making his way to the musical heart of the City of Palaces.

    Repertoire includes music by Playford, Purcell, and Locke; music for sitar and voice; period transcriptions of Hindustani and Bengali songs.
