Oh, solitude – Lutesong in Lockdown

Our latest concert was inspired by the lockdown period marking the worldwide Covid-19 epidemic. Many of us experienced loneliness, frustration, depression and financial distress, but for some it was also a time of reflection, rest and quality time with our children. In this strange new reality we needed to learn how to gauge emotions from just a set of eyes above a mask, and to accept our ever-greying reflections in the mirror. This programme is a tongue-in-cheek commemoration of a time of adversity, but also a time that reminded us of how much we love performing live. With guest Colleen Oxtoby (violas da gamba) and music by Monteverdi (Lamento D’Arianna), Krieger, Arcadelt, Purcell and Viadana.
