    Fontanella are delighted to be giving this performance as part of Early Music at Discoed, performing music from their album Woods So Wild, and a sneak preview of music their new album, The Nightingale's Response. Both albums explore the theme of nature expressed in music, from the complex virelais of the French medieval Ars Nova, to the exquisite word painting of the Italian renaissance madrigal. Works include    the remarkable birdsong chanson L’Alouette by Janequin, virtuosic divisions from the 17th century Division Flute, and Fontanella's very own arrangement of Vivaldi's concerto La Pastorella. A feast of feathery and leafy pleasures!
