The Linarol Consort of Viols are celebrating the 500th anniversary of the death of one of the Renaissance era’s most celebrated composer – Josquin des Pres. Their own festival is now well underway but there are opportunities to catch up on love concerts by watching online. Find out more from the festival website: Josquin 500.
Our next concert will be on Saturday September 18th 2021 to be given by Ensemble Moliere in St Martin’s Church, London Road, Worcester, WR5 2ED
Ensemble Moliere features Alice Earll (violin), Flavia Hirte (flute),Catriona McDermid (bassoon), Kate Conway (viola da gamba/cello) and Satoko Doi Luck (harpsichord). They will be playing a programme of music from 18th Century France by Lully, Rameau and Couperin entitled Dance Sweets. They have performed throughout the UK and Europe to much acclaim: Albert Edelman of Concertgebouw Brugge writes of their performance…”having heard the stylish Ensemble Moliere a couple of times…one thing that struck me in particular is their consistent quality. Their devotion to the playful and by all means extremely demanding French repertoire I found quite rare indeed”
You can find more about them on their website; (www.ensemblemoliere.com) meanwhile put the date in your diary so you don’t miss this opportunity to hear a wonderful programme of French Baroque music.

Here’s a snippet to whet your appetite;
There are two parts to the concert; one of English Songs and one of Italian. It’s great to see that many people have already enjoyed watching both parts, and I know our sponsors will be interested to hear how many people have engaged and benefitted from our work.
