Biber: the Joyful Mysteries
Sunday 9 December, 5.00 pm
St Swithin’s Church, Clunbury, Shropshire SY7 0HG
In the days leading up to Christmas, Nicolette Moonen (violin) and Pawel Siwczak (organ) perform the first five of the Rosary Sonatas by H.I.F. Biber (1644–1704). In these sonatas, Biber’s highly descriptive music addresses and describes the birth of Christ and the events that surrounded it. Pawel Siwczak will also play organ music by composers of Biber’s time. The concert will take place in this beautiful parish church, built originally in the twelfth century, and will be candlelit.
