Electric Fetus

400 years ago, in 1623, England lost two of it's greatest composers: William Byrd and Thomas Weelkes. In a program marking this double anniversary, The King's Singers and Fretwork turn their focus to the bold personalities of these two men, Will and Tom. Featuring well-known gems by the two composers, alongside works which had never been recorded before and which are rarely heard live, Tom and Will unlocks some of the humanity behind these two giants of Elizabethan music. Presented in The King's Singers' unique style, this program is filled with beauty, drama and storytelling. As part of this project, The King's Singers and Fretwork have commissioned two new works for their joint forces, by two of Britain's great living composers: Sir James MacMillan and Roderick Williams. These works only feature in the version performed by The King's Singers and Fretwork, but represent a commitment to keeping the spirit of Byrd and Weelkes alive in today's musical landscape.
