The Bird Fancyer's Delight 
For centuries composers have been fascinated by Birdsong, incorporating all sorts of beautiful birds into their music.

We explore these pieces from the early Renaissance through to the Baroque (and beyond!) on over 30 different instruments, whilst weaving information about each composer, their music and our instruments throughout the concert.

Music by Poglietti, Byrd, Van Eyck, Uccellini, Zahnhausen, Orme, Couperin, Arne, Morley
