Her name goes back to the beginning of our timeline: Maria. It’s resounded through the centuries, never losing any of its appeal. From madonna to majesty: The Marias just keep coming and going. Maria Callas, Mary Poppins, Bloody Mary: where would history be without its Marias? She was the muse for a long line of composers: Palestrina, Reger, Rodgers & Hammerstein. Wishful Singing’s ode to Our Ladies brings them all together in What about Mary?, a programme of melodies with a Maria in the leading role. After all, without a Maria, there would have been no Sound of Music.
