The power and wealth of 17th century Roman noble families attracted some of the best musicians from Northern Italy and beyond, bringing with them not just the latest musical trends of the early Baroque, but also particular styles such as a predilection for all-female vocal ensembles. Our Bath-based team of 3 sopranos (Jane Hunt, Philippa Neaverson and Maria Danishvar-Wilson) explore works for up to three female voices by Rossi, Carissimi, Kapsberger, Frescobaldi and Landi, accompanied by Din on archlute and baroque guitar. This performance will take place in the fabulous Italian Cloister within the Peto-designed Gardens of Iford Manor, and is included in garden entry.
