What's happening in the music?

A classical violinist excited by the experimental, a soprano who can flit between Bach and Berio, a visionary cellist, and a keyboard player equally at home in period-instrument groups or jazz clubs. These curious minds have curated a unique setlist of stories and songs that shine a light on the Tudor era.

Elizabeth I’s reign was a time of adventure, exploration, and enlightenment. While Sir Francis Drake sailed around the world, John Dowland and J.S. Bach expanded our musical horizons. Hear how, in a Prom that moves from the Medieval chant of Hildegard von Bingen to Ralph Vaughan Williams’ folk songs to a world premiere by current composer Edmund Finnis.
