Gregynog Festival - Chirk Castle Part-Books

Duration:
2 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 14 June 2014

Stephen Rice directs the Brabant Ensemble performing works from the Chirk Castle part-books, at Chirk Castle. The concert includes several first contemporary performances of other more recently transcribed works from the part-books, and organ solos performed by Christian Wilson. The building of the original Chirk Castle started in 1294, with choral services established later at the castle in the mid seventeenth century, for a choir of around twelve singers. The Chirk manuscripts contain an array of works for unaccompanied voices, and items scored for solo voices, chorus and organ. The Brabant Ensemble, originally formed to perform under-exposed music from the sixteenth century, will be seeking to recapture the original intimacy of those early performances at Chirk Castle.
