Charpentier ''David and Jonathan''
6.00pm
St Peter’s, Sudbury
Marc-Antoine Charpentier, long under the shadow of his rival Jean-Baptiste Lully, is now recognised as the greatest French composer of the seventeenth century, equivalent to Henry Purcell, his near contemporary. We have performed a number of his major works over the years, including his popular Midnight Mass and the chamber opera Actéon, and now we present a rare complete live performance one of his greatest works, the sacred opera David et Jonathas.

Peter Holman’s vivid performances of seventeenth-century music have delighted audiences SVF and further afield for many years. In this concert he is joined by a number of our regular soloists (including Daniel Auchincloss singing the two roles for haute-contre or high tenor) and our resident ensembles.
