Papagena: Nuns and Roses II - St Mary's Church, Moseley, Birmingham UK - Birmingham

Sparkling female vocalists Papagena sing medieval, classical, folk and contemporary a cappella from around the world. Their programme ranges from 12th century abbess Hildegard of Bingen to Imogen Heap, from Romanian and Russian Orthodox hymns to lilting folk lullabies. Throw into the mix Purcell, Scarlatti, Libby Larsen, Caitlin's Moran's comedic take on Kipling's IF and the group's new cover of Sweet Child of Mine and you have Nuns and Roses, music sacred and profane, tender, witty and urbane.
