Song Company: Lully Lulla

2 December @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

Tickets: $65 Adult | $60 Concession | $40 Under 30
The final program in the 2017 season The Attraction of Opposites is set within the narrative framework of mediaeval English verse, with seasonal music old and new that touches both on the joy of a young mother giving birth to the King of the Ages, and on the hard-hitting realities of exile, refugee status, and the ‘slaughter of the innocents’. The ‘Coventry Carol’ Lully, lulla is one of three songs (transcribed, arranged, or composed by Thomas Mawdycke in 1591) from the Shearmen and Tailors’ Pageant and is justly famous for its chillingly evocative tale of Herod’s rage. Woven into The Song Company’s telling of the story are new Australian and English carols, as well as a Gloria in excelsis from the first part of the 15th century with upbeat syncopations and happy harmonies that could have been written yesterday.
