A programme celebrating music by the Masters of the Children at the Chapel Royal and those linked to Pepys from the time of the Restoration. Anthems by Cooke, Blow and Humfrey are interspersed with extracts from the diary of Samuel Pepys, who gives us a first-hand account of the music performed in the chapel and his frank opinion of the music and choristers of the time.
This concert will be performed by a small group of eight singers and seven instrumentalists.
