C.C. Podcast Season 2 #4 - Fine Knacks indeed!

Denyse, soprano, poses between songs at Rideau Hall

If you love Renaissance madrigals, we have a Two Part CC Podcast for you. 

Starting this week with Part 1, Fine Knacks for Ladies, by John Dowland - an English madrigal from the Renaissance - will be dissected and refined. This week, specific pronunciation (to overcome singer's individual accents)  is reinforced through our favourite method - practise, practise, practise.

Our director decided long ago to be true to each song's roots. That's why we work with experts on language pronunciation for all our songs - even down to regional differences in dialects.

Of course any group can work to overcome their own regional sound if they emulate a British Boy's choir sound, an authentic Spanish cadence or French language finesse.
