Written specially for the London-based baroque ensemble Ceruleo, Clare Norburn’s latest concert-drama takes us back to 1695 and inside the fevered head of English music’s great genius Henry Purcell as he lies dying. Dream-like memories of the Plague, the Fire of London, family life and the vibrant Restoration stage merge seamlessly with his exquisite vocal and instrumental music.
