First Book Of Ayres 1600

& Shakespeare’s Songs

The recording of songs from Thomas Morley’s First Book Of Ayres and our original settings of Shakespeare’s songs was a result of our involvement with Parham Manor in Sussex and a fund raising gala to help replace the enormous number of trees lost in the hurricane of 1987. We expanded the material to create the album Nothing But Love with the counter tenor Peter Nardone, the cellist James Halsey and Simon James on guitar. The recording was made in St. George’s Chapel, Horsham in the Autumn of 1991.
