Renowned period ensemble The English Concert and Harry Bicket are joined by two singers at the height of their powers - bright voiced soprano Rosemary Joshua and the graceful mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly - as they delve into the musical world in which Henry Purcell was immersed. Through the course of this concert, recorded live at Wigmore Hall, we explore the music of seventeenth century England; from the irresistible Suite from The Tempest by Matthew Locke to John Blow's sprightly Chaconne in G, crowned by beautifully crafted and luminous songs by Purcell himself.
