Duets for Counter-tenors

Friday, 26 June at 10.00 pm

These are archived details from 2015 – current details are also available.

‘With Rival Notes’

Alexander Chance counter-tenor
Michael Chance counter-tenor
Laszlo Rozsa & Oonagh Lee recorders
Lucia Capellaro baroque cello
Maggie Cole harpsichord

Music by Henry Purcell and John Blow, including O Solitude and O dive custos by Purcell, and extracts from Blow’s famous ‘Ode on the death of Mr Henry Purcell’.

Alfred and Mark Deller frequently gave duet concerts at Stour and around the world in the 1960s and 70s, so it is especially pleasing to welcome another generation of father and son counter-tenors to perform at Stour Music. Michael is, of course, one of the most distinguished singers of his generation, while his son Alexander is in his final year as a choral scholar at Oxford.
