ROYAL RHYMES AND ROUNDS
To mark the Diamond Jubilee of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II in 2012, The King’s Singers have created a lively programme of secular music from the reigns of some of the Queen’s more colourful forebears, Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and Victoria. Henry was a man of many parts, some more attractive than others. Amongst other accomplishments he was noted as a fine musician, and many musical works have been ascribed to him. Music played an important role in the courts of all 16th Century English monarchs, and musical puzzles and rounds were very popular during the reign of Henry’s daughter, Queen Elizabeth I. Rounds come in many different forms, sacred and profane. The development of the madrigal form in Tickets: £23.00, £20.50, £18.50, £14.50, £12.00
