The Food of Love – Music for Shakespeare’s plays and poems
Shakespeare’s plays were at the heart of the Restoration theatrical repertory. Freely adapted, with lavish music and spectacular staging, a number of them have remained popular ever since.  In this programme, music by Henry Purcell is placed alongside that of his predecessors, Matthew Locke and Robert Smith, and of his pupil John Weldon, painting a picture of changing musical approaches to the words of the bard.

“The Bach Players perform with a real sense of commitment to the music and with great unanimity of purpose.” (Early Music Review)
