In Flagrante is a local choir and now based in Richmond. We have a good mix of voices and all share and enjoy the power singing. We have a definitive style when performing in the way we look - dressed in black and purple.
However, we do not have a regular sound and perform a mixture of music genre as like traditional folk songs, as in Scarborough Fair.
In 1965 Paul Simon learned about this song when he was on tour in England, where he heard a version by a popular folk singer named Martin Carthy. When Carthy heard Simon & Garfunkel's rendition, he accused Simon of stealing his arrangement. Carthy and Simon did not speak until 2000, when Simon asked Carthy to perform this with him at a show in London. Carthy put his differences aside and did the show.
The concept of unrequited love. The yearning is felt throughout the song, creating a perfect medieval love story inthe process. A young man delegates certain impossible tasks to his lover with the condition that she would have to finish those to be able to come back to him. This is a haunting melody sung in four part harmonies and is full of storytelling, so it is essential the words are heard clearly and, as the song builds up to its completion, the arrangement keeps the audience interested.
In contrast we sing The Logical Song. It has quite a maniacal quality, again full of words and attitude and asking ‘Tell Me Who I am!’
It is a song by English rock group Supertramp that was released as the lead single from their album Breakfast in America in March 1979. It was written primarily by the band's Roger Hodgson, who based the lyrics on his experiences being sent away to boarding school for ten years. The song became Supertramp's biggest hit, rising to No. 7 in the United Kingdom.
In Flagrante is very versatile and will continue to sing songs of various styles to suit everyone’s tastes.
