Now Winter Comes Slowly
A festive programme for soprano and lute of wintry favourites featuring scenes from Purcell’s Fairy Queen and King Arthur, hymns to the Virgin, celebratory Christmas songs by Bach and Scarlatti and traditional carols and Noels. Elin and Elizabeth’s popular alliance will sprinkle some musical magic on a dark winter’s night…….
Elin Manahan Thomas is one of the most exceptional sopranos of her generation. She has performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals and with leading orchestras and conductors. Elin is perhaps most famously known for her performances of baroque masterpieces such as Handel’s ‘Eternal Source of Light Divine’ at the London 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony and again at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Elizabeth Kenny is one of Europe’s leading lute players. Her playing has been described as “incandescent” (Music and Vision), “radical” (The Independent) and “indecently beautiful” (Toronto Post). In twenty years of touring she has played with many of the world’s best period instrument groups.
