The Madrigal Society proudly presents our first concert for 2017: Tasteful Censorship!
Madrigals have a reputation for being bawdy, drunken, and crude. Even our very own past concerts have put the spotlight on stories of adultery, drunken foolishness, and Spaniards making Very Bad Life Choices.
This concert however is full of music which is completely, absolutely, definitively, definitely not about anything inappropriate. How could songs about birds, like sparrows and tits, be anything but a beautiful meditation on nature and beauty? How could stories of praying and dying bring to mind anything other than the highly religious experience of life in the sixteenth century? There will be no (explicit) mentions of any human foibles in this very tasteful concert.
Join us at 4pm on Sunday the 28th of May in the Old Darlington School for a highly respectable afternoon of music, followed by refreshments after the concert.
