Dunedin Consort: La Vendetta Nardus Williams sings Strozzi - £5-£24, FREE to U18s

Dunedin Consort favourite Nardus Williams returns for her most intimate programme yet, drawing together the works of seventeenth-century women that blur the sacred and secular. These songs burn in equal measure for Jesus and more earthly lovers, seeking by turns forgiveness, release, and vengeance: Barbara Strozzi delights in the prospect of revenge on unfaithful partners while Rosa Giacinta Badalla wishes to banish worldly temptations entirely. Amidst this incredible emotional intensity, come imaginative and innovative instrumental sonatas by Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre and Isabella Leonarda.
