Purcell and the Chapel Royal

Saturday, February 24, 2024 at 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

At the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660, following the English Civil War, the recreated Chapel Royal became once again one of the greatest choirs in Europe. Its finest composers were Henry Purcell and John Blow, both trained as choristers in the Chapel and then appointed as its organists. Both of them also wrote Latin motets, probably composed for the Catholic Chapel of Queen Catherine of Braganza at St James’ Palace. Contrapunctus presents some of their sacred masterworks, including Purcell’s famous music for the funeral of King Charles II.
