Lorin Wey: Hey, Ho, the Wind and the Rain


In Mid 2003 Lorin Wey, a former Vienna Boys Choir member now turned professional soloist, recorded for Tadpole Music a programme of songs set to texts by Shakespeare, chiefly by English composers from the seventeenth to twentieth centuries. Some of the songs are well known, others unfamiliar: all are beautifully sung and accompanied variously by instruments including lute, theorbo, viol, recorder, harpsichord and piano.

As accompanists, he is joined by his brother Terry (piano and harpsichord), Johanna Valencia (viola da gamba and recorder), Stewart McCoy (lute and theorbo), Markus Wey (recorder) and Richard Carter (viola da gamba).
