Queen Anne’s Solace


Early Music by Candlelight Summer Festival 2019

Chamber music in Stuart England.

Two queens called Anne bookended the Stuart dynasty: Anne of Denmark (d. 1619, consort of James I), and her great-granddaughter Queen Anne (of the Oscar-nominated film ‘The Favourite’). Both were plagued by debilitating illnesses; yet they were generous patrons of music, dance, and theatre, and of composers such as Dowland and Handel.

Dowland: Mr Collier his Galliard with Two Trebles
Blow: Prelude in C
Eccles: A Ground for ye H’chord
Lawes: Ayre & Almaine
Matteis: Aria Amorosa
Tomkins: A Verse of 3 parts
Purcell: Sonata VI & ‘Golden’ Sonata VIII from ‘Sonatas of Four Parts’ (1697)
Handel: Trio sonata op. 2/6 HWV391

 Charivari Agréable:
Sam Kennedy—baroque violin
Edmund Taylor—baroque violin
Mark Walkem—baroque violoncello
Kah-Ming Ng—harpsichord

Duration: 1 hour 30mins with interval
