A double celebration of Britten’s centenary and the Feast of St Cecilia. Andreas Scholl returns to King’s for his debut performance of Britten’s moving cantata with renowned tenor James Gilchrist. Purcell’s joyful works, which comprise a wide variety of vocal soloists and obbligato instruments, were much admired by Britten. The countertenor soloist features strongly throughout and the programme includes one of the great countertenor numbers - Sound the trumpet.

“It might be a golden age of the countertenor, but few can equal the sheer beauty of tone and dramatic instinct displayed by Andreas Scholl” BBC Music Magazine
