If Orpheus charmed humans, animals, and even the gods of the Underworld with his lyre, then Henry Purcell, known as the “English Orpheus,” did the same for kings, queens, and commoners alike with his compositions. In his short thirty-six years, he cerated an astounding 850 works of music or more—and they still captivate and enchant us centuries later. Our spring concert will be an intimate evening of Purcell songs for voices and lute, reuniting our four-voice ensemble for solos and multi-part songs that journey from the sublime to the irreverent and back again.
