Works by three of the most popular composers of the 18th century make up the main part of this programme, exploring music for voice, oboes of different sizes and shapes, and continuo. The solo cantata became the vehicle for some of the most expressive chamber music writing of the baroque age, spanning the full gamut of emotions from introvertly moving to Italianate brilliance.

The much-­‐loved soprano Natalie Clifton-­‐Griffith, known through many performances and recordings with the English Chamber Orschestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Ex Cathedra, CBSO, I Fagiolini and  many of the country’s leading early music ensembles, will be joined – on period instruments – by Mark Baigent oboe, oboe d’amore and oboe da caccia, cellist David Hatcher and harpsichordist Hilary Norris.
