River God Songs

Moeran     Three Songs of Springtime

Campion     Oft have I sighed

John Paul Jones    Cradle Song                                                   

Ian Telfer    Finisterre                                                      

Peter Erskine     Ash and Snow                                               

Arvo Pärt     Pari Intervallo                                               

Peter Pope     I know a bank; When to her lute Corinna sings;

Dunhill     Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths

Tony Banks     That time of year; Rose-cheeked Laura

Having topped classical charts in the UK (with Amores Pasados) and Germany (with Secret History) these international performers return to York as Alternative History.  The name reflects their roots in Renaissance performance practice, which they apply to 20th-century song and new music.  Transcriptions by Warlock and Moeran, and songs by the almost-unknown Nadia Boulanger pupil Peter Pope are partnered with pieces written for the ensemble by living songwriters.

Tickets: £17; concessions £15; students £5
