Wren300 Concert: Instruments of Time and Truth

Sun 16 Apr | 3.30pm-5.00pm

de Jager Auditorium

This special concert in the atmospheric surroundings of Trinity’s Wren modified Chapel offers a musical glimpse of London in the later years of the architect’s extraordinary life. It showcases composers who were active around 1723 and who represent the musical styles prevalent in London in the first three decades of the 18th century as Wren stepped back to survey his astonishing lifetime’s work. The programme features trio sonatas by William Croft (1678-1727), sacred songs of John Weldon (1676-1736) and secular songs and theatre music by John Eccles (1668-1735).
