Totnes Early Music Society presents
Duo Dorado
A CELEBRATION of BACH
Some glorious music from the composer described in his day as ‘the Miracle of Leipzig’, From violin sonatas with basso continuo to solos for each instrument, this wide-ranging programme includes the great Sonata in A major for violin and keyboard, the beautiful G major Basso Continuo Sonata, and a highlight from The Art of Fugue.
We are thrilled to bring Hazel Brooks (baroque violin) and David Pollock (harpsichord) back to TEMS after a ten year gap. They have performed extensively in the UK and beyond, and their current project exploring 17th century English repertoire has led to some ground-breaking recordings, the latest being The Unknown Purcell for Chandos.

Vision is an atmospheric candlelit show with a personal narrative by the extraordinary Abbess Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) alongside performances of her mesmeric chant. The show gives an insight into the painful visionary experiences Hildegard suffered throughout her life, covering some of the core emotional moments in her life. It is “an imagined testimony” as Hildegard lies on her deathbed, revisiting and re-experiencing meaningful episodes from her past, including the moment when she was taken from her family at the age of 8 and when she made the decision at the age of 42 to finally talk about and write down her visions.

Saturday 27th April at 7.30pm
St Mary’s Church, Totnes
Totnes Early Music Society presents
Syrinx
BLAST FROM THE PAST
From the 14th to the 18th century, wind music could be heard everywhere from grand state occasions to the humblest village dance. Syrinx aim to recreate this impressive tradition playing bagpipes, shawms, dulcians, deutsche schalmei, baroque oboes and bassoon: their repertoire covers the rise of the professional wind band, with music from early anonymous masters, Dufay and Morley through to Handel and Telemann.
Syrinx received acclaim for their first album, The Saxon Alternative. Members play with leading period orchestras including the Academy of Ancient Music, The OAE, and the Akademie für Alte Musik, Berlin, and in ensembles such as I Fagiolini, Mediva, Blondel and Concentus VII.
