20 July @ 18:00 - 19:00$40 – $50
The expression of melancholy has a distinctive and intoxicating voice in the music of Baroque England. Whether provoked by the pains of a love lost or welcomed in the pursuit of contemplation, it inspired some of the most intimate and affecting music from composers such as Henry Purcell, Henry Lawes, and John Dowland.
Internationally acclaimed, ARIA-nominated baritone David Greco joins the enchanting plucked strings of Ensemble 642 in this program exploring the unique pleasures of melancholy in English music from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
