The critically acclaimed Oxfordshire early music trio Musical Banquet are making a welcome return visit to St Peter's Church in Bournemouth and presenting another eclectic programme of Early Music. Step back in time 400 years to hear the group serve up a delectable menu of musical treats including vocal and instrumental works by Early English and European composers, including Morley and Campion, interspersed with colourful period anecdotes.

St Peter's Church is located in the heart of Bournemouth town centre and the Grade I listed bulding was completed in 1879 to a design by G E Street as the town's founding mother Church. The fabric incorporates work by some of the finest Gothic Revival architects and artists, including Edward Burne-Jones and the chancel has been described as 'one of the richest Gothic Revival interiors in England'. The 202 feet high spire is a notable landmark!

This is an entertaining and highly unusual opportunity to experience works performed using period instruments, with countertenor voice, much as the 17th and 18th century audience might have heard them. With plenty of surprises along the way, this short recital will be presented in the group's characteristically innovative, energetic and imaginative style and the new Spring ‘menu’ features a serving of 'musical madrigal nibbles' together with a tribute to the poet and songwriter Rober Burns. A tempting indulgence for all musical gastronomes!

No charge is being made for admission but retiring donations in aid of St Peter's Church would be gratefully received.

Musical Banquet's vibrant and energetic performances have delighted critics and audiences alike:

‘The effect of such entrancing music was quite magical’ ‘Beautifully presented with wit, polish and panache’ ‘A musical marvel!’ ‘The audience were spellbound’ 'Such enthusiastic and passionate performers' ‘An unforgettable evening!’ 'I was truly impressed by your virtuoso performances' 'It was a real treat to listen to early English and European music performed to such a high standard‘ 'Thank you for another great show. You remain unique and indefatigable (and very digestible!’)’

Come along and experience for yourself this 'Feast for the Ears'!
