Three sublime choirs bring you.....
Revel in the Renaissance - German, French, Italian and English vocal music from the 13th-16th centuries
Sydney group, I Cantarini with its elegant and intricate 7 voices accompanied by Bernie Williams on Theorbo, local legends, Choir V with their sumptous blend of stunning unaccompanied voices and Acappella Nova with their generous and inspiring interpretations, will sweep you off your feet and away to the renaissance times in Europe.

Composers include King Henry VIII, Thomas Weelkes, William Byrd, William Corynish, John Wilbye, John Bennett, Francis Pilkington, Orlando Gibbons & Thomas
Acappella Nova will be in authentic renaissance garb and our supper will also be traditional fare from the period.
