Music by Couperin, Charpentier and Blow, with Stéphane Degout and Samuel Boden

Arcangelo, inspired by Jonathan Cohen’s visionary artistic leadership, has injected fresh energy and panache into the performance of Baroque music. The ensemble’s approach is informed by a deep understanding of the emotional language and expressive rhetoric of works from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, focused here on Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s intense settings of the Lamentations of Jeremiah.

The programme draws on the jaw-dropping virtuosity of the players and their ability to work in consort as chamber musicians. Arcangelo is joined by the internationally acclaimed French baritone Stéphane Degout, among the most versatile artists of his generation, Samuel Boden, a seasoned performer of lyric works of the French Baroque, and fine British tenor Thomas Walker.
