    On Saturday the 18th of November, Patricia and Matt Redman came to our village, Oborne, which is just outside Sherborne in Dorset, and put on their concert ‘Songs of The Great War’. It was brilliant! In fact, in a way it was a pity that they were up on a stage as their performance is so wonderfully informal – we could all have been sitting around the fireside at home – a family gathering! Patricia’s sang the songs – she really does have a beautiful voice – and the virtuoso Matt accompanied her on a whole range of stringed instruments. Although the background to the songs – the Great War – is somber, there was nothing maudlin or sentimental about the music – well, alright, just a little bit sentimental at times! But with their relaxed style and their chatter about the songs and Matt’s instruments, it was a hugely entertaining and fun evening, one that we will long remember. We want them both to come back to Oborne as soon as possible to do their 1940’s concert. Thank you Patricia and Matt for coming a long way to deepest Dorset and giving us a truly great evening.

    I asked for IN DARKNESS LET ME DWELL by JOHN DOWLAND published 1610 apparently but I really hope it was actually written before then and Queen Elizabeth who died in 1603 at least heard it because I always think Patricia sings it as Gloriana herself might have when free from fortune and mens eyes – Notoriously insomniac and plagued by terrible dreams when she did at last doze off. a tormented spirit full of righteous anger and secret gnawing guilt. I have always found the Renaissance lute a strange shell of death as it exists in Europe – it was clearly designed as a parlour instrument because even birdsong will drown it let alone a soaring Mezzo . What Matt gives us here is a kind of Mythic – Dowland fled from the Court of King James I to the Ottoman Porte. James was a Protestant a pedant and a graceless bogey picking bore. Dowland was a Catholic so he had to go as many others did. He spent time in Denmark and The Empire He might have sailed to Constantinople. THIS IS THE TURKISH VERSION Matt plays an Oud the lutes great grandfather, much louder fretless and built for melodic improvisation. Patricia even chose a dress that looks 16th Century Turkish a lot more comfortable than the stand up by themselves monstrance’s of Elizabeth’s reign. I was surprised I had overthought the event and it turned out as something new and brighter despite the melancholy words obsessed by death .


    Go get one booked and sung – its like being a Duke of Chandos or a Prince Esterházy for ten minutes before coming down bang to earth.


    Patricia I just listened to the latest home concert. I had been a little concerned about the later verses of ‘My Lagan Love’ as it gets a lot steamier round verse three or four and becomes just the kind of thing an old Irish Baritone that had too much the drink taken, would pull his vulcanised rubber teeth out for.
    “Her warm kiss is felicity that knows no trace of sin”
    I need not have worried you sensed its ancient barbaric roots and sang it like a high priestess in the depths of the great tumulus at New Grange reinforced by Matts eerie thundering BASS. If ever an instrument created its own mythic space its that one. And then the strange words the old aural similes the bogwood fire all fitted in a Song of Hearts desire.
    I think it’s one of your great gifts that you can hold and hold those long notes and then slowly bend them like gold wires without losing forward momentum.
