Programme Note

In this dramatic programme, Elin Manahan Thomas and Elizabeth Kenny return to explore early musical portrayals of queens – saintly, virginal and secular. Powerful female characters are brought to life through music that spans the centuries from Hildegard of Bingen to Carissimi, from Monteverdi to Handel and scales great emotional – not to mention vocally virtuosic – heights. This is a concert of thrilling monologues, narratives and meditations, interspersed with reflective instrumental interludes presented by two of the finest virtuosos of their generation.
