Theatre of the Ayre

Theatre of the Ayre is Elizabeth Kenny's platform for bringing dramatically-minded singers and players together to create inspirational programmes of seventeenth century music.
profile & recordings >>

Focusing on the 'ayre', the central part of a masque, it offers a fascinating glimpse of the audacious and experimental virtuosity that is often absent from our image of English music of this time.

Inspired by the achievements of the 'Lutes and Voices', Kenny developed The Masque of Moments in 2015, highlighting the glories of little-known vocal music from the Jacobean and Caroline masque.

The 'lutes' plucked soundworld, of which this recording gives a hint, reflects a cornucopia of sounds used to create everything from a tavern scene to a reflection of paradise. The 'voices' come courtesy of Sophie Daneman, William Purefoy, Ian Wicks, Nicholas Mulroy, Giles Underwood, Rosanna Wicks and Salisbury Cathedral Choir.

The Observer
'...there are exquisite sounds from Kenny's plucked-instrument ensemble...with nicely refined singing.'
