Harmonia Sacra - English Domestic Sacred Music
The Old Baptist Chapel, Off Church Street, Tewkesbury
Kate Fawcett (violin), Henrik Persson (cello), Martin Perkins (keyboard)
with Hannah Grove (soprano)
On the Saturday of the Easter weekend, enjoy reflective music by Purcell, Humfrey, Handel and others including works from the Harmonia Sacra collections, with instrumental music from the period.
Kate Fawcett and Martin Perkins revived the original Musical and Amicable Society, founded in Birmingham in 1762, as a collective of professional period-instrument specialist musicians. Known for the clear quality and agile nature of her voice, Hannah Grove has a particular affinity for the repertoire of the Renaissance and Baroque eras, working with period instrumentalists such as the Academy of Ancient Music and the Corelli Orchestra.
