Guildhall Cantata Project

I attended this concert by the The Guildhall Cantata Ensemble, which presented the last masque to be composed for the Stuart Court. John Blow’s Venus and Adonis, based on the classical myth, was an inspiration for Purcell’s Dido & Aeneas. It was performed here alongside Henry Purcell’s masque from Timon of Athens, and Purcell’s In Guilty Night – Saul and the Witch of Endor. An atmospheric and well-performed selection.
