October 2021 – Continuo Foundation Award

We're delighted to announce that Sounds Baroque has been awarded a grant from the Continuo Foundation. This will enable us to develop our project entitled 'I love and I must' that features songs by Henry Purcell and instrumental works by his contemporaries. It stars mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston with Jonathan Manson (bass viol), William Carter (theorbo and guitar) and Julian Perkins (harpsichord).
