About

Leamington Music was launched in July 2006, and aims to maintain Leamington and district as a musical centre dedicated to promoting excellent music.

This winter, the Early Music at St Mary’s Warwick series sees an even bigger time span than usual. It started with Ex Cathedra singing the Vespers of Rachmaninoff written in 1915 and goes back to the fourteenth century with Stile Antico – this equally wonderful ensemble bringing its programme inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy. The Classical period is represented by Haydn with the Valencia Baryton Trio offering a rare opportunity to hear the exotic baryton played here and, for Baroque, we go to the Sun King’s reign in France with Ensemble Molière. A concert commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death of William Byrd was always obligatoire and the Chelys Consort of Viols with mezzo Helen Charlston did this with great style. And, in welcoming back Joglaresa for the Christmas concert, we travel all over the British Isles, harking back to various historical periods.
