Event description

Description

For many years now Polifemy, directed by Robyn Mellor, has brought to Canberra audiences the ethereal sound of a women’s a capella vocal consort, often as part of the High Court of Australia’s regular Sunday afternoon concert series. The group specialises in early music, particularly from the Renaissance, but is not afraid to boldly go forth into the 20th century and beyond, with works by composers such as Britten and Holst.

Tales of Morality and Good Sense provides an eclectic suite of songs from all ages that aim to educate (in the nicest possible way) performers and audience alike of the importance of manners, politeness, obedience, working hard, not falling in love or following one’s heart. Songs will traverse all morals, from a serious retelling of the ant and the cricket by William Byrd to a light-hearted lecture on the pleasures of vacuum cleaning.
