Fieri Consort

Fieri Consort’s second concert reminds us of a time when England looked outside its borders to Europe for inspiration. An unknown traveller published in 1588 an anthology of Italian madrigals in translation to make them more accessible to English singers and to enable the public to understand the nuances that linked text and music together. These ‘Englished’ madrigals will be sung alongside two stunning pieces by William Byrd and famous works by their great contemporary, the Spanish composer Victoria.
