Music from the soul of the 17th Century

Dynamic baroque ensemble Spiritato makes its Stour debut (along with the Marian Consort, who came in 2020) with a thrilling performance of music and composers admired by J.S.Bach himself. These large-scale, uplifting works composed after the trauma of the Thirty Years War have a remarkable resonance today. This is music from the very soul of the 17th Century, crowned with soaring melodies and the glorious sound of four trumpets and drums.
