Dates/times in London time zone

Jephte makes a rash vow and sacrifices his only child, and Peter denies Christ as the cock crows. These agonisingly beautiful works by Carissimi and Charpentier are amongst the earliest oratorios. This Lenten programme explores the beginnings of oratorio with more glorious music by Monteverdi, Gesualdo and Anerio- whose publication Teatro armonico spirituale di madrigali lends the concert its name.

'...rising finely to that wondorously poignant final lament' (The Independent)

£35 / £28 / £22 / £14 plus a booking fee of £2 by phone and £1.50 online. Book online or via phone on 020 7222 1061. Booking opens on 23 October.
