About The British Masters

What is the true meaning of home? This bold collection of works by composers of the British Baroque—be they British by birth, choice, or force—will enrapture and enliven while answering that perennial question. H+H collaborator Reginald Mobley and renowned Baroque violinist Rachel Podger co-curated this assortment of British delights, including something for everyone: Alongside familiar favorites from Purcell and Handel, discover a long under-recognized voice in Ignatius Sancho, a composer who was enslaved at birth yet became the first Black man to vote in a British election. Music Purcell: Suite from Gordian Knot Purcell: “O Solitude” Purcell: “Here the Deities Approve” Sancho/arr. Nicola Canzano: Dance Suite and Songs Handel: Sonata a 5 in B-flat Major, HWV 288 Handel: “Cara sposa” from Rinaldo Handel: “Yet can I hear that dulcet lay” from The Choice of Hercules Handel: Concerto grosso in F Major, Op. 3, No. 4 Performed by Rachel Podger, director and violin Reginald Mobley, countertenor H+H Orchestra
