Once thought to be musically inferior, the riches of the English musical tradition were rediscovered through musicians such as tenor Peter Pears and virtuoso classical guitarist Julian Bream. Pears and Bream premiered many new works by modern masters such as Britten, Tippet, and Berkeley, while also bringing to light the glories of the lute music of the Elizabethan golden age. Join us for a celebration of the English Orpheus across the ages, in a musical journey showcasing the best of English songs and madrigals, and English music for classical guitar.
