Join the pure-voiced soprano duo Fair Oriana for an atmospheric evening of Elizabethan music that explores the public and private faces of the queen.

This programme is intimate yet theatrical, combining ethereal music with a stylish and entertaining performance. It centres around Thomas Morley's madrigal collection of 1601, 'The Triumphs of Oriana' uniquely arranged here for two voices with instrumental accompaniment. Fair Oriana features three of these 'Triumphs' to represent the glorious public face of the Elizabeth 1, but pitches these against the stark contrast of her private persona, her 'Trials', which are represented by lute songs and more internalised, emotional music. This programme takes the audience on a journey, exploring the public and private sides to Elizabeth.

Fair Oriana celebrates the works of John Dowland in particular, while also introducing a brand new psalm setting and contemporary lute song by composer Fraser Wilson, that sets Elizabeth's own words to music and explores jazz as well as historical influences.

Fair Oriana are rapidly establishing themselves as an outstanding ensemble in the UK and internationally, known for their clear voices and trade-mark blended sound. They are accompanied by some of the UK's leading young period instrumentalists.
