Il Pastor Fido Brompton – CANCELLED

July 15, 2018|4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Brompton Cemetery Chapel, Brompton Cemetery, Fulham Road
London, SW109UG

£15

We are sorry that this event has been cancelled.   Luca Marenzio’s seventh book of madrigals (1595) is notable for drawing its texts from Guarini’s tragicomedy play Il pastor fido (The Faithful Shepherd). The collection is arranged to follow the courtship between two lovers Amarilli and Martillo and represents an important step between the 15th-century madrigal and 16th-century opera.

St Paul’s Church, Percy Street
Alnwick, NE661AE
+ Google Map
