Music from the Mediaeval to the late Renaissance.

Represented by Emily Baines and Arngeir Hauksson, Amyas is a period instrument group.  The group specialise in exuberant performances of historical works. As an authority in historically informed performance, they carry out cutting-edge research into earlier practices.

Duo Maddalena, are otherwise known as mezzo soprano Lucy Green and soprano Janet Oates.  This duo focus on three aspects of music, and their interactions. Namely, early music; contemporary classical music; and music by women composers. For each concert they invite friends and colleagues to join them.  These guests provide historically informed accompaniment.

Address: St Michael’s Church, Michaelchurch Escley, Herefordshire, HR2 0JW, United Kingdom

Description: Quite a large church for a small village, Michaelchurch Escley was restored in the nineteenth century. This was done with a tad more sensitivity than was always the case, although the grim message over the Victorian lych gate is not necessarily encouraging. Apart from that, the most obvious external addition is the west tower from 1897. Inside, the screen is from a similar period, although the Art Deco pews are a little later. The most striking aspect in the church, however, is the medieval wall painting of Christ of the Trades.
