POSTPONED — Purcell: Songes & Ayres

June 7 @ 4:00 pm

- £5 – £22

This tour has been postponed. We are hoping to reschedule these dates in the Autumn and will update you with more news as soon as we can. All tickets already purchased remain valid for rescheduled dates. Please contact the relevant box office for a refund. 

 

Soprano Mhairi Lawson joins us for an intimate programme of song, a genre that Purcell firmly made his own. With his flair for drama and extraordinary gift for bringing words to life, Purcell poured many of his most creative ideas into his songs — each of them miniature masterpieces, equally as captivating as anything he would compose for the stage. They are paired here with some of his most exquisite and intricately wrought instrumental works, shining examples of Baroque dialogue at its most eloquent.
