We are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of our recent recording of Purcell, Locke and their contemporaries with Sarah Connolly and Rosemary Joshua.
Appearing under the Wigmore Hall’s own label ‘Wigmore Hall Live’, the release is a recording of our 2015 concert entitled ‘Music be the food of love’.
CDs go on pre-release sale at our next Wigmore Hall performance on Wednesday 7 June; an exploration of the musical treasures of Jewish baroque music.
