Gather in one of Margate’s most atmospheric locations to recreate a musical gathering from yesteryear. Singers from the cathedral choir will perform the lively songs which delighted audiences in the town throughout the 18th and 19th centuries.
In England’s towns and cities throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, wherever there was drinking, there was singing – and it could be surprisingly civilised as everyone could join in with ‘catches’ and ‘glees’.
Four Lay Clerks of Canterbury Cathedral (gentlemen singers in the choir) have been exploring this charming repertoire, and for this year’s Being Human festival they’re getting together to bring this music to life in Margate Caves. Join them to explore a repertoire by turns cheerful and charming, serious and subversive, rude and roisterous. It’s a journey of musical discovery recalling the temper of a very different time.
