Nature’s Voice – Heures Musicales de l’Abbaye de Lessay

Friday 14th August @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Abbaye de la Sainte-Trinité, Lessay, Rue Paul Jeanson
Lessay, Normandy 50430 France
€5 – €40

For centuries, music has mirrored nature. From delicate birdsong to rushing rivers, and the shifting sounds of the seasons to the rustle of the undergrowth, this intimate programme for soprano and orchestra celebrates nature’s voice in music, tracing its presence through some of the pillars of the Baroque repertoire. Telemann’s orchestral suite Wassermusik (Hamburger Ebb' und Fluth, TWV 55:C3) is juxtaposed with one of Antonio Vivaldi’s best-loved concertos, alongside exquisite vocal works by G.F. Handel and Alessandro Scarlatti, all united in the way they bring…

How Lonely Sits the City | Online Broadcast

Thursday 19th November @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Free

Click HERE to view the broadcast. Nicholas Mulroy director In times of isolation we find ourselves longing for community — for acts of kindness, understanding, and generosity of spirit. Few texts seem more fitting just now than the opening of the Lamentations of Jeremiah: ‘How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like a widow has she become, she who was great among the nations!’  As we come to terms with a prolonged period of social isolation, we reflect upon these themes in music from the Renaissance to the present day.
