Over the Easter break we released a track recorded live at our recent concert at Ewenny Priory on our YouTube channel: William Byrd’s joyful motet “Laudibus in Sanctis”. Written in a madrigalian style, with evocative word-painting and dance rhythms, it’s an exuberant setting of Psalm 150. Have a listen to it here!
This was the first time we’d ever performed at Ewenny Priory Church – noted for having one of the finest acoustics in Wales – and we loved every minute of it. Despite the chilly winter weather, we received a lovely warm welcome from the Ewenny Arts Festival organisers (including some very well-received coffee and biscuits), and having such a large audience turn out for us on a cold February evening was the icing on the cake. We very much hope we’ll have the opportunity to perform at Ewenny again in the near future.
We plan to release some more tracks from the concert on YouTube soon, so watch this space!
