Orlando Chamber Choir
Lucy Goddard, director

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 Brumel, Clemens non Papa, De Rore and 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 Des Prez’ well-known cricket hiding amidst the leaves. 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 a few contemporary garden-inspired compositions, 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 picnic for all.
