Eboracum Baroque are delighted to return to the idyllic surroundings of The Orchard Tea Garden in Grantchester for a series of baroque concerts.
Their final performance features a concert version of one of Henry Purcell’s greatest works, King Arthur. This patriotic opera is packed full of great tunes from battle cries from the chorus and trumpets tunes through to the shivering ‘Cold Song’ and the iconic ‘Fairest Isle’.
We perform this work with just 9 singers acting as both the soloists and chorus accompanied by an orchestra of strings, oboes, recorders and trumpet. It features a vast array of characters from evil magicians, soldiers, amorous shepherds, drunken peasants and mythical beings.
