  2. Funeral Sentences for the death of Queen Mary - Henry Purcell
  3. Beati omnes qui timent Dominum - Henry Purcell

Two of Britain’s most celebrated composers are contrasted in this summer concert which pairs the genius of Purcell with the contemporary master James MacMillan. Henry Purcell was England's leading composer of the Baroque, and wrote an astounding variety of music in his 36 years, from the heartbreaking Funeral Sentences written following the death of Queen Mary, to the joyful wedding anthem Beati omnes, and his groundbreaking opera and theatrical writing. The acclaimed chamber choir Paragon Singers present an exploration of some of these styles alongside the work of James MacMillan, whose innovative and emotive use of harmony provides a modern complement to Purcell's, as is evident in the beautiful and varied Strathclyde Motets. Join us in the beautiful surroundings of St. Swithin's Church for a midsummer's evening of astounding music.
