We regret to announce, due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, our live concert performance of Purcell and Charpentier at City Recital has been cancelled. Therefore, we are no longer able to offer this digital concert film. If you have already purchased your Digital Concert Pass, we will be in touch shortly via email.
The first of Pinchgut Opera’s rescheduled performances from 2020, this is music fit for royalty. Charpentier’s majestic Te Deum was written in honour of the Sun King, Louis XIV, and its grandeur and elegance reflect the magnificence of his palace at Versailles. Across the Channel, written just one year later, Purcell’s Come, Ye Sons of Art celebrates the birthday of Queen Mary with music of sheer pleasure.
