Ayres & Graces    

The polished presentations of this popular words and music consort have delighted audiences for more than a decade. You may choose from an existing portfolio of programmes or commission a new one on a theme close to your own heart. Whatever choice you make be assured of an amusing, melodic and highly informative entertainment.

"A Unique And Original Way to mark that special event or occasion."

In June 1999 they premiered "Dear and Gracious Lady" at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. This tribute to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert was ecstatically received. English Heritage have asked the group to research the life of Queen Elizabeth the First for a programme to be performed at Rycroft Chapel in Oxfordshire. Princess Elizabeth, while still in her teens, was held captive at Rycroft by her sister, "Bloody Mary".

Existing programmes based on Tudor England, English Country Gardens, the English Countryside and Old Father Thames are acclaimed wherever Ayres and Graces perform. "A Taste of the Good Life" and "Songs of Empire" are in preparation.

Ayres and Graces have a long association with Hatchlands Park near Guildford where their Christmas concerts sell out every year. They are also planning a tour of National Trust properties to celebrate the life of James Lees-Milne who was Country House Secretary for the Trust from 1935 to 1951. They are planning a tour of the United States.
