Carolyn Sampson and Matthew Wadsworth at The Chapel Park Lane Sunday 20 September

There are just a couple of returns for each of these concerts on Sunday if anyone would like them – £20 each, Roger

SUNDAY 20th September at 2pm & 6.30pm

Carolyn Sampson and Matthew Wadsworth present a programme of some of their favourite 17th century songs, touching all corners of society. From  plaintive folk songs and ballads to the genius and depths of Dowland, Johnson and Purcell. Music was played and heard, in the street, at home, in religious settings and in the theatre, just like today. At the centre of the programme is Echos in air by Laura Snowden – a wonderfully hypnotic work for solo theorbo, written for Matthew Wadsworth in 2019.
