About I Fagiolini: Draw On, Sweet Night
Robert Hollingworth director
A gentle end to the day with the best of John Wilbye’s classic Golden Age madrigals as featured on I Fagioliniʼs lastest CD release. Ranging through the English melancholy of ‘Draw on, sweet night’ and ‘Weep, weep, mine eyes’ to the sheer pleasure of ‘Sweet honey-sucking bees’ and ‘Adieu, sweet Amaryllis’, this concert is also peppered with neglected gems such as ‘Cruel, behold’. And who wouldn’t give a wry nod at the line ‘Ah me, that I were young again…’!
