Barock Voices with Tea and Cakes

Sunday 15th October 2017 at 3.30 pm 

Brympton House, Brympton D'Evercy, Nr Yeovil, BA22 8TD

 

Brympton House, near Yeovil, provides the perfect setting for this programme of music by Italian, German and English composers writing in the period 1600 - 1750 and presented in the baroque-built part of the House with its finest and most lavishly decorated rooms.

Choral and instrumental music of Handel, J.S. Bach, Vivaldi, Monteverdi and Purcell feature in the concert, with excerpts from Handel's operas including Lascia Ch'io Painga, one of the composer's most celebrated soprano arias;  music from Vivaldi's Gloria and a performance of Bach's festive motet, Lobet den Herrn.  There are glorious settings for two choirs by the 17th century composers Heinrich Schütz and Michael Praetorius, and more festive music by Purcell, Sweelink, Buxtehude and Monteverdi.

Accompaniment is provided by Peter Twitchin, chamber organ, and Carina Drury, cello.

 

Tea and cakes will be provided at the interval and with it an opportunity to donate to the work of St Margaret's Hospice, Somerset.
