Purcell's Finest Verses was presented as a live event on 12 February 2021 and is now available for you to watch on demand.
The programme consists of three parts:
1. Welcome and introduction (10 minutes)
2. Purcell's Finest Verses, a concert-come-documentary of Purcell's finest songs for countertenor and tenor voice. La Nuova Musica is directed by David Bates and the soloists are Tim Mead (countertenor) and Andy Staples (tenor).
3. Post-show discussion and live recording session with the artists. Audience members were invited to ask questions to any of David Bates, Tim Mead, Andy Staples and Emily Ingram (Founder of Greengage). Then, the artists recorded and mixed a bonus performance live! See what goes into making ensemble music during these strange times.
