The process of developing our programmes leads us again and again to discover songs that are new to us – rarer songs from the past as well as music from living composers. Combining these finds with standard repertoire throws light onto old favourites, illuminating anew those special qualities which had become less vivid with over-familiarity.
Our song programming is therefore ideal for discovering and sharing less familiar repertoire, especially contemporary works which can be programmed alongside more familiar repertoire in an audience-friendly way. Our themes could also provide inspiration and a ready-made première platform for songs specially commissioned.
