Wonders of Nature
Music from the Renaissance to the late Baroque, by English, French, German and Dutch composers, focusing on a favourite theme of the time: rural life, and nature, implicitly set against the more complex life of a court or a city (to which the artists belonged).
This concert has been made free to celebrate the new partnership between Bach Club and All Saints Tooting.
If you can, please reserve your place on-line, it helps us with planning, venue layout etc., but you’re welcome to just show up on the day!
