In the Northern Hemisphere the Northern Equinox marks the beginning of spring, a time to dance, to celebrate earthly rebirth with symbols of fertility and renewal, a time to be frisky! In the south, it is the beginning of Autumn, a time to contemplate the changing of the seasons, to accept that all things must rest. We commemorate the Vernal and Autumnal Equinox with exquisite music by much loved composers from the 17th century and contemporary eras:
Tobias Hume, William Byrd, Thomas Morley and John Dowland. From Australia, we include gems by Ross Edwards, Elena Kats-Chernin and the premiere of Reza Barati by Brooke Green. Celebrating 400 years since Dirk Hartog's Dutch expedition landed in Australia: the first in our exploration of Schenck's Sonatas for 2 bass viols: The Nymph of The Rhine
