|The Bach Players gave a delightful evening of music at|
Norwich Octagon Chapel
The music was from composers of seventeeth century Austria and seventeeth and eighteenth Italy. Johannes Ockeghem, Claudio Monteverdi, Giaches Brumel, Rupert Ignaz Mayr, Giovanni Baptista Pergolesi and Heinrich Biber.
Performing on the night were Sally Bruce-Payne alto, Nicolette Moonen violin, Rachel Isserlis & Anne Schumann violin/viola, Alison McGillivray cello/viola da gamba and Silas Wollston organ.
This was my first visit to The Octagon Chapel and I was very impressed with the venue. The Bach Players all played excellently. Sally Bruce-Payne gave an majestic vocal performance which lifted everyone in the audience. The Bach Players are inspired by the spirit of Baroque and keep the spirit of the music alive completely. I was very inspired by their music which has lead me to finding out more about the composers and this period of music.
The Bach Players are back at The Octagon Chapel on 1st July 2011 for La Grande France. Please attend if you can for a night of delightful and inspiring music.
