CD launch: New Carols and Songs for Chaucer’s Pilgrims
We are delighted to announce the launch of New Carols and Songs for Chaucer’s Pilgrims, the brand-new medieval-inspired CD composed by countertenor David Yardley and performed by some of Australia’s finest choral musicians and soloists, featuring members of the Pocket Score Company.
It has been 600 years since many of the songs known to Geoffrey Chaucer have been heard. Although the music was lost, their words have survived and now, after centuries of reluctant silence, they can sing again.
Songs of ale and love; of saints and of war and of doomsday; carols of Christmas and sweet lullabies. All re-imagined with original music composed by David.
