Henry Purcell, who only lived to the age of thirty-six, is considered one of the most original composers of the Baroque era. In a version by singer Klaus Nomi, the “Cold Song” from his King Arthur even made it to the pop charts. We will be presenting the Baroque original in a streamlined version (if all the acting roles were included, it would take half a day), performed by an all-British ensemble.
