The French Connection

This Anglo-French musical extravaganza follows the life of Nicholas Lanier, a French lutenist who fled to England escaping religious persecution and went on to gain the title 'Master of the King's Music' in the court of Charles I and II. Nicholas' grandfather had been court composer to Henry II of France, so this performance weaves music and poetry together to paint a picture of courtly life across the channel . Featuring composers such as Nicholas Lanier and de Boesset, this musical feast is not to be missed!
With period instruments and historical acting techniques that combine lute music and the declamation of poetry, Nymphes et Monstres bring you more than just a Classical concert.
For this concert, Nymphes et Monstres is joined by very special guest Michael Fields. He and soprano Kat Carson will take you through some of the best music from Charles I reign.
"[Nymphes et Monstres] treated us to a wonderfully imaginative programme communicated with energy and a high level musicianship.” (Pyecombe News, 850 Celebrations March review)
