About this event
Cost £25
The SPAB London Group in association with The Georgian Group proudly present this unique opportunity to hear early baroque music sung in one of London’s finest baroque churches, consecrated in 1730.

A wonderful evening of Baroque music, performed by the highly acclaimed ‘Baroque Encounter’, featuring Glenn Kesby (counter tenor), Lucy Thomas (soprano), Katie De La Matter (harpsichord and organ), Lauren Brant (recorders), and David Beaney (baroque flute and recorders) in a programme of music written around the time of the celebrated architect of St Anne’s, Nicholas Hawksmoor (1661-1736).

Music includes works by Monteverdi (1567-1643), Corelli (1653-1713), Purcell (1659-1695), Bach (1685-1750) and Handel (1686-1759).

Celebrate the approach of Christmas and experience a ‘Baroque Encounter’ in this marvellously atmospheric Church, which featured in the Christmas television specials of “Call the Midwife” and the tough East End film "Legend".

Come and enjoy the Christmas Carols, light refreshments, mulled wine and mince pies in this unique and historic setting.

Doors Open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

Book early to save disappointment as numbers are limited and sold on a first come first serve basis.

Nearest rail service: LIMEHOUSE, 12 minutes by DLR from BANK Underground Station.
