Adelaide Chamber Singers: Fables

Banchieri’s ‘musical pudding’, Il Zabaione Musicale of 1604, vividly presents the bucolic, the melancholic, the festive, the whimsical, the passionate and the dramatic – in a lively romp through early 17th century madrigal styles.

On the other hand, The Unicorn, the Gorgon and the Manticore (1956) is a 20th century ‘madrigal fable’ for chamber choir and instruments. It is the story of a well-to- do, eccentric, castle-dwelling poet whose youth, middle age and old age are symbolised by three unusual pets – a unicorn, a gorgon and a manticore – and fits hand-in-glove with Banchieri’s delightful dose of food, sex and fun.
