A Concert of Baroque Music
On Saturday 9 October 2019 I will be rejoining a group of local musicians to give a teatime concert of Baroque music. Moot Point Music are a talented bunch who play on period instruments and it will be a delight to join them again. The concert in Wirksworth URC church will include music by J.S.Bach, Telemann, Handel and Loeillet.
I am looking forward to singing with harpsichord and viola da gamba as well as baroque flute and violin. My contribution will be Purcell and Boyce.
The concert is on the Armistice weekend so it seems fitting to perform Dido’s lament. I hope to lift the mood later with a lighter Purcell piece and a sweet little Boyce song. I previously only knew his symphonies but I am now discovering the delightful vocal repertoire.
