United by a love and fascination of Baroque vocal music, Ensemble Ancien presents musical treasures of the 17th and 18th century for modern audiences.
Comprising passionate and experienced early music specialists, the ensemble’s performances mirror the elegance and charm of the period.
Be transported to 17th-century England, through the lesser known vocal works of British luminaries Henry Purcell, Nicholas Lanier and John Blow. Exploring universal sentiments of love and languish, this intimate performance by Ensemble Ancien is attractive to all lovers of music.
