The good weather over the summer provided the ideal opportunity for four sessions of private outdoor chamber music, in very small groups… in a very large garden. Repertoire included partsongs, madrigals, consort songs, Renaissance dance music and even a soloists-only Brandenburg 2.
Thanks to Karol Jawoski and Roger Lilley for directing the partsongs and madrigals respectively, and to our generous hosts. Some photos from the various sessions are below. We hope to explore outdoor early music further over the coming months.
