Programme Note

Music from 18th century England in a programme combining Shakespeare songs and other popular songs from the theatre and pleasure gardens with trio sonatas  and other instrumental music, including country dances. Composers to include  Arne,  Handel, Boyce, Dibdin, Henry Carey, Shield and Ignatio Sancho.  


The entertainments of the 18th century were not confined to London. Songs from the shows and for the pleasure gardens spread around the country, and visitors to spa towns like Cheltenham and Bath were eager to attend concerts and balls. We also know that sheet music found its way into the homes of many a keen amateur; indeed, domestic music-making played an important part of social life. We can imagine that much of the music in this concert would have been enjoyed not only at public events but also in the home.
