Elias Quartet


Purcell Fantasia

Britten String Quartet no. 2 in C


Benjamin Britten composed this hypnotic, deeply moving string quartet to mark the 250th anniversary of Purcell’s death. It evokes the Suffolk coast, the opera Peter Grimes, the composer’s anguish about the war which had just ended and, above all, the music of Henry Purcell, whose music precedes it.



His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts


Purcell Hear my prayer
Henry Loosemore Fantasy for three viols to the organ
Byrd Prelude in C
Peter Philips Pavane & Galliard ‘Dolorosa’
Antonio de Cabezón Fabordón y glosas del Primer Tono Llano
José Ximénez Batalla del sexto tono
Scheidt Paduana Dolorosa
Schein Die mit Tränen säen
Scheidt Galliard Battaglia
Guami Toccata del secondo tuono
Gabrieli Canzon seconda


This pioneering group of cornett and sackbutt virtuosi delights audiences worldwide with the sound of its noble instruments. Their programme uses the galleries and antiphonal possibilities of Castle Howard’s Great Hall, beginning with Purcell and featuring English, Spanish, German and Italian music from a golden age.​


‘There’s great variety among the wonderful split-chorus effects, hypnotic chordal intonations and the lovely spicy harmonic clashes … the performers marvellously project the power, glory and praise of this music.’ – BBC Music Magazine
