Join the Orchestra of the Age Enlightenment to open their Associate Artist series with works by Praetorius and Schütz, two of 17th-century Germany’s biggest musical personalities. In this concert music resounds from all corners of Christ Church Spitalfields in expressive, overlapping multi-choir harmonies. You can also be part of the music, performing chorales with the musicians as would have happened in the Lutheran church.
This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
Supported by Spitalfields Music Patrons and an anonymous donor
6.30pm | Free to concert ticket holders (booking required)
Director Robert Howarth leads a pre-concert workshop for audience members who wish to join in with the music of Schütz and Praetorius during the evening’s performance. No previous musical experience required.
