American countertenor Reginald Mobley, harpsichordist/director Laurence Cummings and the Academy of Ancient Music explore a different vision of the English Baroque in which the music of Purcell, Handel, and Ignatius Sancho redefined the culture of a nation.
Curated by Reginald Mobley, Sons of England weaves music and words to explore alternative histories of the English Baroque, culminating in a Sancho-inspired new commission by composer Roderick Williams: musical history shaping a shared future.
Baroque England was a nation turned inside-out: a fledgling democracy that could also be profoundly unjust, a culture convinced of its own uniqueness but which welcomed genius from all lands. Tonight, the Academy of Ancient Music explores an era that’s never felt more current.
The music of the London-born Purcell sits alongside masterpieces by Handel – a German who became English by choice, and Ignatius Sancho, who was born into slavery but found freedom and musical success in Georgian England.
The programme will include works by Henry Purcell, Samuel Pepys, GF Handel, MC Festing and Ignatius Sancho, and a new work by Roderick Williams.
