Vocal quartets were all the rage in the 19th Century, mostly for domestic performance. Nearly every household had a piano and most people learnt to sing so there was a huge market for such works.

Damask Vocal Quartet and their pianist, Flore Merlin, have put together a wide-ranging nocturnal programme that features another master-student combination with Brahms and Gustav Jenner as well as lesser-known songs from Schumann and Heinrich von Herzogenberg. Ned Rorem’s Four Madrigals are gentle a capella songs. Late night magic.
