‘With a merrie noise’

Verse Anthems, anthems & consorts for viols by Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Tomkins & William Byrd

The programme aims to rediscover the poetry and rhetorical force with which Gibbons’ exquisite verse anthems may have been heard, in private chapels and in the Chapel Royal in the 17th century, accompanied by viol consort and interspersed with jewel-like examples of his fantasias.
