Orlando Chamber Choir presents an all-sensory summer concert with the
fragrance of flowers and the sound of Franco-Flemish Renaissance
gardens. Our musical plantsmen include Antoine Brumel, Jacobus Clemens
non Papa, Cipriano de Rore and Orlando di Lasso, all of whom captured
melodies from the biblical gardens of the Song of Songs. There will be
secular flora too – polyphony about roses, lilies, vines and other
greenery – with Josquin des Prez’ well-known cricket hiding amidst the
leaves. Clément Janequin adds birdsong to this musical garden, with
singers mimicking starlings, blackbirds and the occasional nightingale.
To root this oasis in today’s Central London, we have seeded two
contemporary garden-inspired compositions by Janet Wheeler, ready to
bloom on the concert day. Orlando’s Garden of Delights is open from
19:00 and, to cater for all senses, will conclude with a communal
picnic.
