Presented by Wentworth Church Music Festival.
Deborah Catterall - Director/Soprano
Company of Voices is a unique blend of singing and acting. The group made their debut at the Wentworth Church Music Festival in 2016 under the name, Amicorum, with an intimate performance of Dowland’s songs. The name change reflects forthcoming ventures into Shakespeare and the spoken word. Other projects include a venture into early French music, including Crecquillon and Lambert; two of the finest names of that era.
The Monteverdi Extravaganza is our tribute to Monteverdi on the 450th anniversary of his birth, which we are presenting to audiences both in Britain and Italy. It explores madrigals, solos and duets contained within his glorious eight books of madrigals and Scherzi Musicali.
The music is moving, uplifting and is considered by many to be even better than Mozart! We also present an excerpt from Orfeo, staged and costumed. The evening promises to leave you joyous and yearning for more!
