Nicolas Mulroy tenor
Elizabeth Kenny, Toby Carr lutes

Songs from two golden ages

An unusual, possibly unique, pairing of two glorious songwriting traditions, bringing together perennial favourites Purcell and Monteverdi with more modern songs from across South America.

Though separated by time and distance, they have in common a concern with love, loss, longing and the eternal elements of what it is to be alive, proving that what unites is more interesting than that which divides.

“the sheer expressivity of (Mulroy’s)singing was a thing of wonder here. Every phrase, every word was turned over carefully so as to heighten the storytelling.” The Times

“the peerless lutenist Elizabeth Kenny” The Guardian

Please note there is a £1.50 administration fee per transaction
