For a special concert in the 2019 Newcastle Music Festival we are joined by world renowned soprano Miriam Allan. In this program we hero Henry Purcell whose music continues to enliven and inspire us. His imaginative works stir our emotions through their attention to the English language. Their sonorous clarity not only highlights the beautiful text but fully transports us to the vibrant court of King Charles ll and the intimate theatres of London. With the “sublime singing” (Gramophone 2017) of Miriam Allan we invite you into the world of 17th Century Restoration England with trios and songs to enchant you.
