Purcell Timon of Athens
Bach Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich BWV 150
Very late Purcell sits alongside very early Bach. Separated in composition by only 12 years, Purcell's masque for Shadwell's restored Shakespeare and Bach's first church cantata display the wealth and variety of European music around the turn of the 18th century.
Part of the London Handel Festival. Tickets available from the London Handel Festival website.
