WHEN DAVID HEARD
Director Mark Chambers | Sestina
June 25th | 7.30pm | Live-streamed | Free tickets via Eventbrite
In a programme based around the almost unknown work Lacrime de Davide by Biagio Marini, this programme will explore the nature of the lament of King David for his son Jonathan, using a new performing edition produced by Mark Chambers. This rarely heard work will be paired with well-known choral settings of ‘When David heard that Absalon was slain’ by Weelkes and Ramsey, written as an outpouring of grief for the death of Prince Henry in 1612.
This performance will be available for two weeks after broadcast.
