Sounds Baroque                         23rd Oct 2017 at St. Mary’s Church Map

This will be the first of our visits to St Mary’s, Luton’s historic church situated in the heart of the town. Its resonant acoustic will be at the service of a programme entitled Old Wine in New Bottles. Under the dynamic leadership of Julian Perkins, the strings and harpsichord of Sounds Baroque with rising young bass-baritone Edward Grint, present a pair of Handel’s dramatic cantatas alongside the more contemporary Jove’s Nod by Stephen Dodgson, a one time vice-president of the club. They will also play a trio sonata inspired by the thriving Early Music scene that was emerging in Eastern Europe in the late 17th and 18th Centuries.

"I have seldom seen singers and players enjoying themselves quite as much as in this performance… Julian Perkins’s clear direction must have been a delight to follow."
