Evensong & Tea: St Peter’s Church, Pertwood

Salisbury Baroque

Saturday 25th January 1600

On the afternoon of Saturday 25th January at 4pm, Salisbury Baroque return to give a short concert of music by Corelli, Telemann, Vivaldi and Handel.  Angus Menzies will provide the narration. The concert will last about an hour. Admission is free; however there is a retiring collection in aid of Alabare Christian Care and Support.

Salisbury Baroque is a period instrument ensemble including familiar string instruments, bassoon, harpsichord and theorbo  (pictured). These pictures were taken at their last concert two years ago. All instruments are tuned to Baroque pitch – roughly a semitone lower than modern-day concert pitch.

Salisbury Baroque was founded in 2010. More about the ensemble at www.salisburybaroque.org.uk
