Mvsica Antica presents Our Own Orpheus

Uniting his works with the Italian masters that inspired him, MVSICA ANTICA perform Henry Purcell ‘s haunting sacred scena In Guilty Night alongside Luigi Rossi’s little-known cantata Disperar di se Stesso, before culminating in a semi-staged performance of some of the songs that earned him the title ‘Orpheus Britannicus’.

  • Henry Purcell (1659-1695): In Guilty Night Luigi Rossi (1597-1653): Disperar di se Stesso Henry Purcell: O Fair Cedaria; Songs and music for the theatre

    Henry Purcell: In Guilty Night (Saul and the Witch of Endor) Luigi Rossi: Disperar di se Stesso

    Henry Purcell: If music be the food of love O Solitude my sweetest choice O fair Cedaria, hide those eyes My dear, my Amphitrite, from The Tempest (or The Enchanted Island) My dearest my fairest I attempt from love’s sickness to fly, from The Indian Queen Hosanna to the highest Man is for the woman made If Love’s a Sweet Passion, from The Fairy Queen

    The Holy Trinity Church

    Holy Trinity Church is set in an ever changing part of the London Docklands, with new developments on the go or still on the drawing board. As such they also have an international community round-about us which is also ever changing, growing and developing.

    Nearest tube station is at Canada Water which is on the Jubilee line and the Overground. Bus routes C10 (Victoria to Canada Water Station) and 381 (Peckham Bus Station to Waterloo / County Hall) run near the church – get off at the Bryan Road and Downtown Road stops respectively. There are two river stops nearby – Greenland Pier and Nelson Dock Pier
