On 25th January, St Botolph Church was full for the very first CulphoMusic concert of 2020.
'Our Fairest Queen' was a magical evening of early music with Elizabethan song and verse. Our two soloists Gillian Keith and Tom Randle set aside their busy international lives for a day, to create a beautiful, and amusing programme full of history and atmosphere.
Performing with them were four of the five London Viols - Peter MacCarthy, Mark Caudle, Louise Jameson and Reiko Ichise. The rich velvet tone of these early instruments and the virtuosity of the musicians was, without doubt, food for the soul and at times completely mesmerising.
Many people contributed to the success of the evening, so thanks go to Richard Garnham and John Lapsley for help with the parking 'challenges' and to Margaret Gornall, Christobel Garnham, Lyn Chapman and 'volunteers' who helped with preparing the church, catering and serving refreshments in the interval.
The final thank you is to Lord Cranworth for being our Patron and supporter.
We have just 60 tickets to offer for each of these concerts, so please check out the next three in the series and book early to be sure of a seat.
