Fiori Musicali have a residency with The National Trust at Canons Ashby and so we’re lucky enough to see them perform at the stunning Priory Church. Friday is one of those occasions!
Fiori players are joined by Soprano Judit Felszeghy for Halcyon Summer performance of works by Handel, Telemann and Corelli. It’s sure to be a gorgeous evening of beautiful music, with an optional garden picnic and Pimms at 6pm to make it that bit more of a treat.
You can also get a sneak peak of the Canons Ashby House gardens. The gardens were originally designed and created in 1710 when Handel, whose music we’ll hear on the evening, first stepped on English soil. They’re a real treat, especially if you’re a fan of gardening, peace and quiet. How the gardeners achieve the symmetry is beyond me!
Here’s what you can expect from the music of the evening with some live footage of Fiori Musicali players alongside Judit performing Tornami A Vegheggiar from Handel’s Opera Alcina. You can see how lovely the church is too with the sun streaming in through the stain-glassed windows!
And of course the summer brings with it Evensong performances. Sunday sees renaissance choral music from the Fiori Musicali Choir, again at the Priory Church presided over by the Bishop of Brixworth. This event is free.
