Orlando Gough –  The World Encompassed

When Francis Drake set sail from Plymouth on 15th November 1577, he took with him four viol players who almost certainly had no idea that they were about to embark on such an epic journey. They accompanied Drakes private worship and entertained him while he ate; he also used their music to impress the natives with sounds both pleasant and delightful. Orlando Gough has created a journey in sound to honour the great mariners remarkable circumnavigation of the world. Music from the 16th century is woven seamlessly with the sounds of Drakes many destinations – Javanese gamelan, Indian dances, a swaying samba and a hypnotic Berber ritual song: a panoply of music, new and old, familiar and strange.

This is one of 55 events forming the Ryedale Summer Festival 2018.
