From 1992 to 2004 the Hamburg-based vocal Ensemble Time of Roses has already enchanted audiences with light-hearted and serious songs from secular and spiritual literature. Now they are back. They present madrigals of the 16th century, British folksongs and own compositions with a distinct sound and charm.
Since 1992 the female vocal ensemble Time of Roses has enchanted their audiences with folk and spiritual songs. Madrigals of the 16th century, British folk songs and with their own compositions gives the quartet a uniquely distinctive charm.
The mixture of the captivating simplicity of traditional folklore and polyphony of the Renaissance makes Time of Roses a special experience.
The press have always given the quartet exuberant concert reviews:
“… Renaissance music – old and boring? Never. At least if “vocal artistes” (as they rightly call themselves) as the four singers of the ensemble “Time of Roses” sing songs from the period 1430-1600. Hundreds of listeners were thrilled on Sunday evening…
The women from Hamburg told beforehand what it was in the stories of love, sorrow and joy in detail. When they recited this a Capella with breath-taking skills, they met the very heart …” (Main-Echo, 12. August 2003, Melanie Pollinger)
