Deborah Coughlin, founder of Gaggle, talks all-female singing with Sara Mohr-Pietsch. Plus vocal wizardry from Bobby McFerrin and a Renaissance choral masterpiece.
When Deborah Coughlin founded 'Gaggle' she soon found herself and her all-female group proclaimed as amongst the 'fifty most forward-thinking people in music'. This week she joins Sara Mohr-Pietsch to explain why, for her, the joy of choir singing is all about being given 'permission to make a noise'. Plus there's vocal wizardry from the ever-imaginative Bobby McFerrin and another choral classic, Josquin's ground-breaking piece of Renaissance ingenuity: the Missa L'homme armé.
