Music has always been played and heard everywhere: in the street, at home, in religious settings, and in the theater. Soprano Carolyn Sampson and lutenist Matthew Wadsworth present a program of some of their favorite 17th-century English songs, touching all corners of society, from plaintive folks songs and ballads to the genius and depths of Dowland, Johnson, and Purcell.
Recorded live in concert September 25, 2020, in London’s Wigmore Hall. Tonight’s program will be available as a stream for 30 days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the stream is accessible.
