Latest review of Theatre of the Ayre at Wigmore Hall 23 Feb 2016

Directed by the theorbo player Elizabeth Kenny,Theatre of the Ayre’s meaty programme…was a love letter to Henry Purcell, a celebration of his wit, his sensuality and his appetite for colour and rhetoric…voices balanced beautifully in ensemble, their delivery…expressive and engaged…(instruments) powering through his most athletic ground basses.
