TLQ on TV soon...

Splendid time we had in Clerkenwell, where we were filmed singing various 18th-century songs for a series about music of the period from Handel to folk-song; orchestral, vocal and instrumental...
The three-part series goes out on BBC4 on Mondays 7th, 14th & 21st April... at 9PM
Rule Britannia
Fairly sure that our bits are in all three parts ...

We sing:
The Anacreontic Song (the original version of.../and also)
The Star-spangled banner,
Thomas Arne's Beer-drinking Britons,
& the catch,
Henry Lawes' Chloe at Cock's Auction... (a jolly glee/round)

The series has been put together by Suzy Klein & David Jeffcock - great to work with these excellent people, and can't wait to see the results... They have been working hard for at least six months on this.
As ever the 'magic' of TV was evident, as one can so see the cracks when you are there, but know it will look spectacular and seamless when we see the finished product... we created a drinking den in  a church crypt!
