…the sound was pleasant and delightfull


During his 1580 circumnavigation of the globe, Francis Drake visited the island of Java, taking with him a consort of four viols aboard his ship, Golden Hind. Drake’s records describe the sharing of music between his travelling quartet and local Javanese musicians. Gamelan Sekar Petak and the University of York Consort of Viols join forces to explore a similar musical exchange, featuring repertoire contemporary to Drake’s voyage and new collaborative works by York-based composers.
