THE ENGLISH VOCAL REVOLUTION


The Civil War destroyed lives, families and the cultural fabric of a nation. But musicians are resourceful, and a few brave souls continued to experiment with the vocal and instrumental techniques they hoped would come back into service ‘when the King enjoys his own again’. Preserving a form of musical resistance that was quietly given the nod by those in power, these musicians kept exotic sounds and foreign-influenced techniques aflame before bursting back on the official music scene in 1660. This concert features music by Robert Johnson, Henry and William Lawes, John Hilton, Robert Ramsey and Giulio Caccini.
