Pinsuti’s spring concert marks the changing season with a floral theme, showcasing two challenging but delightful modern song sequences: Lauridsen’s Les chansons des roses and Mealor’s Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal. A more uniform lightness of spirit emerges in madrigals from the reign of Elizabeth I: a stylistically varied selection from The Triumphs of Oriana, compiled and published in 1601. Each of these ends with the same couplet celebrating "Fair Oriana", who may or may not have been Queen Elizabeth I.

With Royal Coronations in the air, we take the opportunity to sing some of the spectacular pieces from A Garland for the Queen, commissioned from leading British composers to honour the new monarch at her coronation in 1953. Intended as a counterpart to the 1601 collection, this Garland emulates its predecessor in its variety of moods and vocal combinations. The music responds to every aspect of celebration, and the choir will sing a selection from the ten part-songs.

We hope you will join us for an evening of variety and depth, contrasting the lightness and pace of the madrigals with the celebratory power of Bliss's Aubade and the "wistful nocturne" of Lauridsen's Contre qui, rose.
