Baroque chamber ensemble Florilegium celebrates the life of concert promoter extraordinaire Thomas Britton in works by Handel, Pepusch, Banister and others.
Clerkenwell coal merchant Thomas Britton (1664-1714) had a passion for music that led him to become one of London’s first musical impresarios, welcoming eminent musicians and cultured aristocrats alike to the narrow room above his shop.
‘London Resounding’, a four-part series of BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts at LSO St Luke's celebrating the capital’s music scene in the 17th and 18th centuries, gets off to a fine start with this visit by one of the UK’s most distinguished Baroque chamber groups. ‘Baroque music playing of the highest quality’ (Canberra Times)
