Forgotten women composers at Wells

A LECTURE-concert exploring the work of neglected women composers will help to raise funds for the restoration of the 15th century Bubwith Chapel at Wells’s Almshouses. Soprano and harpsichordist Sara Stowe will give the talk at the chapel on Tuesday 27th February.

An exceptionally versatile musician, Stowe’s repertoire ranges from medieval song through the baroque to contemporary. She has performed at festivals throughout Europe and around the world, and has made many recordings.

The one-hour Wells lecture will focus on the 18th century and women composers at a time of musical change from harpsichord to piano and from baroque to classical.

Sara Stowe will play and sing music by Anna Bon, Elisabetta da Gamberini, Elizabeth Jaquet de la Guerre, Marie Antoinette, Maria Teresa d’Agnesi and Julie Emilie Candeille from the period of Louis XlV to that of Louis XVl and the French Revolution.

The lecture starts at 7pm. All the money raised will go to the restoration of the 15th century Bubwith Chapel.
