Ensemble Augelletti in North Stoke

Church of St Mary the Virgin, North Stoke, West Sussex
27th July 2024

A new generation Baroque Ensemble

The Friends of St Mary the Virgin North Stoke

welcome all to

Ensemble Augelletti

With Readings by Matthew Bannister & Yvette Byrne

The Programme includes Purcell's 'Golden' Sonata and Dances from his "Fairy Queen";   GF Handel's Trio Sonata in G Major, and Antonio Vivaldi's Trio Sonata in D minor "La Follia", together with the Trio Sonata of the still-mysterious  "Mrs Philharmonica" who as a female could only compose anonymously.  The music will be prefaced by short excerpts from the  diaries of Samuel Pepys, read by Matthew Bannister and Yvette Byrne.  Pepys was an enthusiastic amateur performer during the Commonwealth when public music was banned, but became an expert musicologist with an entree into the Restoration Court and the Chapel Royal where Purcell was trained.  It should be an exceptionally entertaining evening.
