From William Lawes in mourning and the expertly crafted Sinfonias of JS Bach through to Purcell’s explorations of musical nostalgia and Hyacinthe Jadin’s visions of tomorrow: the Tufnell Trio presents a varied programme of composers’ dialogues with the past, present and future.

Lindsey James & Freya Turton sopranos
Sophie Timms mezzo-soprano
James Rhodes tenor

Music for a While
Horizon Voices weaves transitional duets and chant interludes between full choir repertoire to create a through-devised performance. Each piece presents a different concept of transition related to religious narrative, compositional context and internal harmonic and textural transitions, featuring works by composers such as Sweelinck, Purcell and Byrd.
BREMF Medieval Ensemble
Daniel Scott recorders
Beth Stone flute
May Robertson fiddles
Daniel Murphy lutes
The Textless Chansonniers
Tracing the transition of melodies from vocal to instrumental music in the 15th and 16th centuries through augmentation, invention and diminution.
Liturina (baroque ensemble)
Gabriella Jones violin
Iain Hall recorder
Nathan Giorgetti cello
Callum Anderson harpsichord
The Obstinate Bass
Liturina presents a sonic experience exploring the theme of transition between different historical eras, different instruments, and different works, all based on an ostinato descending bassline. Extending this idea further, their programme plays with the boundaries of beginnings and endings, merging the pieces into a continuous musical experience.
Anacronía (baroque ensemble)
David Gutiérrez flute
Pablo Albarracín violin
Luis Manuel Vicente viola
Marc de la Linde viola da gamba
Marina López harpsichord
Anacronía joins us from ECOS Festival in Spain with this stunning film of CPE Bach’s Andante un poco largo from Divertimento in G major H642.
