Musick of My Verse: The Music of Michael Drayton's Poly-Olbion

A selection of early music directly inspired by Michael Drayton's Poly-Olbion (published in 1612 & 1622).

Tickets: free entry - donations to the Exuberant Trust and Flash of Splendour Arts welcome at the door.

Ars Eloquentiae is fast establishing a reputation as a versatile and vibrant ensemble specialising in period performance. In 2014, they were invited by the William Hogarth Trust to spearhead celebrations for the artist's 250th anniversary and also undertook a joint project with the University of Cambridge, researching and recording Parisian street songs from the Seventeenth Century.

This fundraising concert has been organised by Flash of Splendour Arts, who in partnership with the University of Exeter are celebrating the Poly-Olbion, Michael Drayton's extraordinary 15,000-line poem (1612-22) about early modern England and Wales.

Flash of Splendour Arts work to empower disabled and marginalized children and young people through the creative arts and are running the Childrens' Poly-Olbian project, a series of workshops with groups of children culminating in an exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society (see exhibition flyer).


The University of Exeter will also be holding a conference at the RGS, as part of the Poly-Olbion Project (funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council), which aims to produce a new scholarly edition of the text by Drayton.
