Coffee Concert

A Purcell Pageant

Solomon’s Knot


Join Solomon’s Knot to delve into the shimmering fantasy world of A Midsummer Night’s Dream as depicted in Purcell’s Fairy Queen, bestudded with jewels from his odes, welcome songs and masques. Dramatised for concert performance by exciting director Tama Matheson, we begin as we end, with a party, which goes on late into the night until all are asleep, only to be roused the next morning by Phoebus himself. The sun god leads us through a pageant of the four seasons, which in turn rouses Hymen for a final celebratory wedding feast.


‘They feel the music as one body. That was one of the things that made this concert a joy.’ – The Daily Telegraph
