To a programme including two Baroque masterpieces – Carissimi's oratorio (c.1648) and Blow's opera (c.1681-4) – La Nuova Musica adds some new music in the shape of an oratorio by the British/Australian composer, whose Voices of Power won an immediate success at the 2022 Three Choirs Festival.

This concert is supported by Sam and Alexandra Morgan
