Voces Sanctorum at Holy Trinity this Friday

If you like very fine 16th and 17th century choral music, there's an opportunity not to be missed at 7pm this Friday evening at Holy Trinity Church on Rotherhithe Street (SE16 5HF).

Voces Sanctorum are coming to sing a programme, headlined by Alessandro Scarlatti's seldom-heard Dixit Dominus, alongside works by Francesco Cavalli and Henry Purcell and solo Theorbo works.  Voces Sanctorum are accompanied by period continuo and violins.  A sample of their music starts playing when you visit their website.

Purchasing tickets has proved to be a somewhat roundabout journey, because the Voces Sanctorum website directs visitors to See Tickets, but the See Tickets website says to purchase tickets from the venue.  The venue (i.e. the church) only has restricted phone-answering times but there's a recorded message on the line that provides the number for the vicarage.  I spoke to someone there who said that I would be able to buy a ticket on the door, and took my name to be ticked off on the evening.

Tickets are  £6.00 each.  Holy Trinity can be reached on the C10 bus, or is a very short walk from the 381 bus stop on Salter Road.

With thanks to the website for posting details on their weekly newsletter.
