Sadly, we had to cancel all recitals for 2020 and nearly all of 2021.  But we have managed to retain one this year ….

9th October 2021  From London to Venice via Paris 

Julia Doyle (soprano)  ·  Matthew Wadsworth (lute and theorbo)  ·  Nathaniel Mander (harpsichord)


17th century London and Venice were veritable melting pots for artistic talent, scandal and creative thinkers alike.

What better to evoke the passions and torments of life in London by the wonderfully fused song, art and poetry of John Dowland and Henry Purcell, and in Venice by the exquisite masterpieces of three of the most daring composers of the time, Francesca Caccini, Claudio Monteverdi and Barbara Strozzi. 

A wonderful blend of poetry and music which is as moving to the soul today  as it was 400 years ago.  This exciting and seductive journey is interrupted by a stop in Paris  for the harpsichord solo of  Royer’s dazzling masterpiece La Marche des Sycthes which will have you sitting on the edge of your chairs.

One hour of intoxicating and intense music from these top-flight musicians followed by picnics in the State Rooms.
