A fascinating and diverse programme of Christmas music from Linnet Baroque, featuring compositions from three female composers - Italians, Bembo and Peruchona both composed in the late 17th C from the reflective solitude of religious communities; and Jane Savage, composer of an extended setting of 'While Shepherds watched their Flocks' for a girls orphanage in Lambeth.

The combination of two recorders with the voice and continuo team creates a wonderful celebratory ambience for this concert of familiar and rarely heard gems. Other composers include Bach, Telemann & Rovenský.

The vocal music is interspersed with virtuosic instrumental music

Linnet Baroque present an exploration of music written for Handel's divas and their infamous rivalry.

Based on Cibber’s description of the Italian singers as ‘costly canary birds’ and music in the ‘bird-song’ genre, the voice and obbligati instruments are treated as equal partners.

Join Linnet Baroque for a pre-lunch concert on a Summer Sunday. The hour long programme of delightful Baroque and early Classical music, alongside a 20C gem, features pastoral English scenes and invokes the naïve passions of a foregone era.

Music from the Pleasure Gardens, 18th C theatre and works written for domestic music-making are included, with compositions by Handel, Vivaldi, D Scarlatti, Shield, Dubourg, Abel, Pixell & Gioradani.

Rubbra’s Cantata Pastorale, written for Baroque ensemble and premiered at the Wigmore Hall in 1957, provides the perfect stylistic contrast, with its Indian tonal influence and dramatic rhythms.
