A Prospect of Marlborough
We celebrated the 30th anniversary of a very special community venture. The programme was built around readings from and about Marlborough. The music was mainly English and mainly secular: Sumer is i-cumen in (plus Ogden Nash’s inimitable parody Winter is i-cumen in), 16th-century madrigals, 19th-century art-songs and approachable contemporary works including Nicholas Brown’s Stillness, a highly imaginative reworking of John Wilbye’s Draw on sweet night. As a special tribute distributed through the programme were contrasting settings of the Latin words Tu es Petrus, with music by Palestrina, Alessandro Scarlatti and Robert Pearsall.

Friday 27 June, St Nicholas Church, Winsley
