    Shakespeare and Purcell saw the London stage as a place for experiment, where cutting-edge music and drama brought theatre to life.

    Shakespeare’s Sonnets provide the inspiration for New York City-raised rapper Baba Israel, while Purcell’s ground basses supply the harmonic groove for O/Modernt’s late-night set.

    • Henry Purcell (c.1659-1695)
          • If music be the food of love Z379c (arr. Henrik Måwe/Svante Henryson)
