These stars of the early music world dazzle in a striking range of repertoire spanning four centuries. You’ll hear English masters old and new: pieces by Byrd, Purcell and Jenkins from the heyday of the viol to songs by Michael Nyman. Arias from Handel’s Giulio Cesare and a “vocal concerto” by Johann Christoph Bach offer a spotlight for a singer of “rapturous virtuosity and uncanny beauty” (The Independent). Partnering with “the finest viol consort on the planet” (Evening Standard, London), Davies conjures breathtaking colors and timbres: a palette perfect for a moment in the sunlit stillness of Ralph Vaughan Williams’s Silent Noon.
