Purcell Songs and Odes from the reign of King Charles II

The reign of King Charles II was an era of excess, of celebration, and some of the most glorious music ever written in these isles. We return to Saffron Hall to sing our way back to the musical world of the Restoration: a world of prayer and jubilation, saints and lovers, sweetness and sorrow, all set to music of unparalleled beauty and grace.

This concert will feature 8 singers and 15 instrumentalists.
