Description

At Home and Abroad
Musical connections between Britain and the Continent in the 1600s

Emma Kirkby soprano
Nicholas Clapton countertenor
David Miller lute

We are delighted to welcome the world-renowned soprano Emma Kirkby to Tewkesbury for a programme of lute songs and solos from France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Britain. Come and hear a selection from Robert Dowland’s London anthology of 1610, A Musicall Banquet (including vintage offerings from Robert’s father, the much-travelled John Dowland) and the earliest full song cycle in English, the Funerall Teares of 1606, by a British composer so enamoured of Italian style that he changed his surname from Cooper to Coprario. In duet form, it is a poignant elegy for one of the most dashing of Elizabeth’s courtiers, Charles Mountjoy, dead within months of his marriage to another dazzling figure, Lady Penelope Rich.
