The People's Purcell

The People’s Purcell reunites tenor Michael Slattery and La Nef to perform some of the most beautiful music by Henry Purcell (1659-1695). Though grounded in the baroque tradition, the vast body of work by Purcell is fertile ground for musical explorations. The People’s Purcell invites listeners to hear this music in a new way.

Set with shruti box, archlute, cittern, flute, nyckelharpa, baroque violin, viola, cello, and viola da gamba, Purcell’s baroque songs take on a different flavour in these new arrangements by Michael Slattery, Grégoire Jeay, Seán Dagher, and Amanda Keesmaat.
