The Intimate Baroque
The Lavenham Sinfonia Ensemble will be joined by soprano Emma Bishton, who will sing a selection of ravishing and joyful baroque arias. The Ensemble consists of violinist Jessie Ridley, oboist Timothy Eaton, Jeremy Hughes on cello and harpsichordist Christine Whiffen.

This is a rare chance to hear some of Handel’s German Arias, written for devotional use in a private chapel in the 1720s. Interspersed with the arias, the Ensemble will play chamber music by the two great composers of the German Baroque, including Bach’s Suite No.3 for solo cello.
