I recently had a chance to skype with the lovely Suzi Digby (Lady Eatwell) OBE (Officer of the British Empire), a renowned choral conductor. We talked about the music of 16th century England, and her new project in Los Angeles, The Golden Bridge, which twins contemporary choral music with that of Elizabethan England.
Here are some of the links to songs and pieces she mentioned:
She moved through the fair – a lovely celtic folk song
The 40 part Tallis piece, Spem in Alium
Morten Lauridsen’s modern madrigals
Weelkes’ The Andalusian Merchant madrigal
