Pete suggested Regent's Park and off we went. Lots of birds and not all wild or native to this country. Heard and saw male Blackcap who sang despite the rain.
I think this is either a Tulip or Judas tree? So I'd be grateful for an ID please?
We only got a little damp in the rain and by the time we reached Wigmore Hall for the concert the skies were brightening...
Stile Antico and Wigmore Hall - wonderful singers who entertained us with (Easter related music):
Gibbons - Hosanna to the son of Daivd
Thomas Tallis - O Sacrum convivium, Salvator Mundi and thirdly In resurrectione tua
Sheppart - I give you a new commandment
Browne - Jesu, mercy, how may this be?
Victoria - O vos Omnes
De Lassus - Vide homo
Taverner - Dum transisset sabbatum
Lhertier - Surrexit pastor bonus and
Weelkes - Gloria in excelsis Deo
The singers returned for an encore which was Thomas Campion's - Never weather-beaten sail.
A lovely concert and wander around Regent's park - despite the rain!
