"The isle is full of noises... Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not"
The Tempest, Act III scene 2 ll 148-9
Music by Dunstable and his followers from the Eton Choirbook and Old Hall Manuscripts.
(Any performers will do, but the Sixteen would be fine.)

Barrett: Opening of the Mouth.
... and an "all-dayer":
James Dillon: Nine Rivers.
Same forces who gave the World Premiere in Glasgow a couple of years ago.
I hope no one will condemn me for this all-British selection (Elision are from Australia, and Ferneyhough is based in the US, if that helps!)
