A musical stroll through the verdant gardens of Elizabethan England
Streaming November 19, 2020
Artistic Direction by Paul Jenkins & Alison Melville
The elaborate gardens of Elizabethan England were place of refuge, pleasure, artfulness, and festivity. These spectacular country estates were hosts to Queen Elizabeth I during her lavish summertime progresses, in which music, poetry, and dance featured extravagantly. Drawing inspiration from our popular album All in a Garden Green, join us for a concert of ballads, madrigals, and rollicking dance tunes by Dowland, Byrd, Ravenscroft, and their contemporaries.
The Toronto Consort lavishes luminous clarity, lightness and vitality on the music. Gramophone
