A Renaissance and Baroque tapestry

MUSIC from the Renaissance and Baroque periods are woven into a fascinating musical tapestry in Historical Fiction, at Dorchester’s St Mary’s Church on Sunday 12th June at 7pm.

Making a welcome return to Dorchester Arts, saxophonist Christian Forshaw is joined by soprano Grace Davidson and Libby Burgess, organ.

The programme includes Handel’s Eternal Source of Light Divine and Gibbons’ The Silver Swan. Davidson’s soprano voice intertwines with Forshaw’s saxophone over the majestic backdrop of the organ, to create a performance which travels through dramatic grandeur and spacious serenity.

Christian Forshaw last visited Dorchester with Tenebrae for their magnificent Drop, Drop Slow Tears concert, and this beautiful programme of voice, saxophone and organ makes an ideal follow-up to that memorable evening of music.
