Josie and the Emeralds St Cecilia 2021 Concert
Plague-themed music! A broadside ballad, a prayer of thanksgiving by John Thorne, and a high-art lament about the pain of solitude by Monteverdi. We honour three composers who died of the plague: Jacob Obrecht, Alessandro Grandi and Robert White. Excessive melancholy could create an overabundance of black bile and leave one susceptible to illnesses such as plague. One of our antidotes is a beautiful Fantasia-Suite by William Lawes and as always, contemporary music by Brooke Green.
