There are 2 options -
1. THE COSIMO
Make like a Medici, and commission some 'art'!
Wow your guests with a hysterical song written specially for your party.
On a general theme (to be agreed) of special significance.
'Challenged to write a Brexit song for my husband's 50th at Dartmouth House, B&C played an absolute blinder - brilliant rhymes, wonderful singing and terribly charming to boot. Encore!' - Sarah B
'Writing a song about the SNP to entertain a bunch of finance execs is a rather tall order, but B&C rose to it brilliantly - and they even pulled off an eye-wateringly-funny song starring Angela Merkel!' - Alan K (commissioned two songs for parties at the Reform Club)
2. THE JESTER
A fully personalised song, complete with in-jokes etc.
(Requires detailed research/briefing, so the pipers must be paid more handsomely.)
A one-off spectacular.
'B&C's song for my wife's 50th at Highclere Castle made her laugh and cry at the same time... I cannot recommend them highly enough. My advice: book them.' - Tim H, CEO
'These boys are truly talented. They made a wonderful evening into a very, very special one, with a song dedicated to my wife for her 60th. I couldn’t recommend them more highly - and I'd be very happy to do so personally to anyone interested in booking them.' - David C
A SONG FOR A PRINCE WHO TURNED INTO A RAINBOW
In the summer of 2017, we performed at the opening of The New Generation Festival, a new opera festival hosted by the Corsini family, in the gardens of the Palazzo Corsini al Prato, Florence.
The Corsini arrived in Florence in the 12th century. Their line includes the saint Andrea Corsini, and Pope Clemente XII, who commissioned the Trevi Fountain.
In 2016, Prince Filippo Corsini (the current Prince Filippo's only son's only son) was tragically killed in a cycling accident in London, aged only twenty-one.
He was brought home to Italy. At the exact moment his mother opened the casket to see his face for the last time, an extraordinary thing happened.
A double rainbow appeared over the house.
(Tibetan Buddhists have reported this occuring when someone attains 'complete knowledge'.)
Gathered for grieving, the family enjoyed unexpected light -
Indeed, the opera festival went ahead partly as a celebration of Filippo, and the lasting light and colours he has given.
One of the family suggested we write a song for the opening of the festival. We wrote this to celebrate the Corsini, and Filippo's legacy.
