The young vocal ensemble InVocare distinguished itself at Laus Polyphoniae. Now it is back on stage at AMUZ with English madrigals by composers including John Dowland, John Wilbye, John Ward and Alfonso Ferrabosco the Elder. The Italian madrigal style set a new tone in England and stimulated a flourishing of English consort singing. To prepare this programme, InVocare consulted specialists on the English pronunciation of the time, to make the very most of the poetry in the texts and ensure that the rhetoric of the text coincides with that of the music.
Music by J. Dowland, J. Wilbye, A. Ferrabosco the Elder, J. Ward and others
