In the fifteenth century the richly harmonised polyphony that emerged from English composers quickly spread far and wide throughout Europe. The Cardinall’s Musick joins O/Modernt to explore the sense of place rooted in works by Purcell, Gibbons, Elgar and Britten, as we celebrate the music of the ‘Fairest Isle’.

Henry Purcell and his inimitable ground basses are the creative spark for a weekend of imaginative programmes in Purcell from the Ground Up directed by Hugo Ticciati from the 7-8 April 2018.
