La Caccia / Patrick Denecker / Susan Hamilton

After having explored Morley's First Book of Consort Lessons, the sole publication of pieces of that time for the ‘brocken consort', La Caccia now turns to one of the principal manuscript sources of music for the ensemble that was so much appreciated in England at the beginning of the 17th century. Pieces and arrangements by Richard Allison and Daniel Bachiler form the greater proportion of the music found in the manuscript, whilst the musicians of La Caccia have also added a few vocal pieces to the programme, these being accompanied by the instruments of this characteristically British ensemble. Once again we may appreciate the freshness of the dances and the nostalgia that the English composers of the time so enthusiastically cultivated.
