To Play Kinge: Baroque Music of Court and Cloister

To Play Kinge: Baroque Music of Court and Cloister


An armed abbess; a beastly Bishop of Bologna A cherubic king; a dedicated diva. What do all these things have in common?

Across 17th-century Europe, nuns were using their talents to influence nobility and politicians. They formed relationships with some of the highest ecclesiastical powers of the day, hosted some of the richest and most powerful women of Europe, and lent support to political ventures their performances.

Come on a journey of music and storytelling through the Baroque convents of Italy and France, featuring some of Oxford’s finest talent.
