The English Concert is an outstanding orchestra: exceptional, in the world-renowned quality, ambition and variety of its live and recorded output; unique, in the zeal of its players for working and performing together; unwavering, in its desire to connect with its audience throughout the world.  A welcome return from 2019, their programme for this year showcases some of their string players in a selection of short concertos by Vivaldi and Handel alongside some sacred music sung by the exquisite voice of Elizabeth Watts.
