The Travels of Song

RefugeeWeek-v3 - cropped

The Travels of Song explores both the itinerancy and universality of music, where a tune composed in one country could end up adopted by another, sometimes far away, and the compositions of musicians in exile. Peter Phillips and Richard Dering had to leave Elizabethan England because of their religion; Paul Hindemith left Germany in 1938 to avoid more trouble with the Nazis. The programme will also include two songs written by detainees of Yarls Wood.

Byrdsong is a group of professional, semi-professional and amateur singers who meet to give concerts of Renaissance polyphony, usually in aid of lovely parish churches and other good causes. This year, they are appearing at both the Brighton and the Petworth Fringes.
