Academy of Ancient Music/'Mortal Voices’

15 February 2018 / 19:30
Milton Court Concert Hall

Baroque specialist Christian Curnyn directs soprano Keri Fuge and countertenor Tim Mead performing some of the most sublime music of the period.

Pergolesi’s Stabat mater is one of his most famous compositions, and one of the finest settings of this sorrowful song to Mary at the Crucifixion. A hidden gem in this concert is Handel’s cantata ‘Ah! che troppo ineguali’, an anguished appeal of mortal voices to Mary for peace, to extinguish warlike fury.
