St. Edward, King & Martyr, Corfe Castle, Wareham, BH20 5EQ

6pm - 8pm


Following on from their Gramophone award win, Mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston and Lutenist Toby Carr bring a world of Elizabethan lute song to Purbeck. John Dowland and John Danyel dance alongside world premiere performances of songs by Ben Rowarth and Anna Semple.
Pre-concert talk at 5pm:
Join performers Helen Charlston and Toby Carr, along with the composers Ben Rowarth and Anna Semple for a pre-concert glass of wine and an introduction to their brand-new compositions.
Ben and Anna will discuss the inspiration behind their works, which began in the highly emotional world of 17th-century English songs, the unusual experience of collaborating together and the process of choosing texts. We look forward to raising a glass to toast this special occasion of two world premieres!
