Scattered Rhymes Choral Tour

Dunedin Consort
St Machar's Cathedral

Nicholas Mulroy: director

The Songs of Songs plunges us into a lush world of ripe fruits, deep waters, scorching heats, and cooling shades. This intense imagery—the Hebrew Bible’s richest and most succulent— drives poetry that is both straightforwardly erotic and tantalisingly allegorical in its exploration of love both human and divine. This heady combination invites a huge range of approaches, from Biana Maria Furgeri’s flowing Ego flos campi for upper voices to Tomás Luis de Victoria’s epic, six-part Vadam et circumibo civitatem. In Scattered Rhymes, Tarik O’Regan sets Petrarch’s own questioning of the boundaries of carnal and spiritual desire, a text further enjoyed by Gavin Bryars’ A la dolce ombra.

Pre-concert talk with Nicholas Mulroy, 6.30pm
