Sacred and Profane: Berkeley Ensemble & The Marian Consort in Aldeburgh

Blythburgh Church, Church Lane, Blythburgh

  • Britten: Sinfonietta; Sacred and Profane
  • Michael Berkeley: Touch Light
  • Lennox Berkeley: Mass in Five Parts; Stabat Mater

Berkeley’s stark and affecting Stabat Mater – the setting of the medieval poem reflecting on the suffering of Christ’s mother by the Cross – was commissioned by (and dedicated to) Britten, who conducted its UK premiere in Blythburgh Church nearly 70 years ago. It’s partnered with Berkeley’s a cappella Mass, Britten’s own settings of medieval poetry, the quicksilver exuberance of his youthful Sinfonietta, and an exquisite meditation on Monteverdi and Purcell by Lennox’s son, Michael.

Tickets: £18, £15, £10 (under 27s half price) from Aldeburgh Music
