Following their first Biber concert at St Swithin’s, in December 2018, Nicolette Moonen and Pawel Siwczak perform the second cycle of the Rosary or Mystery sonatas. This cycle is concerned with the death of Christ and the events that surrounded it. Pawel Siwczak will also play organ music by J.P. Sweelinck and Heinrich Scheidemann. The concert will take place in this beautiful parish church, built originally in the twelfth century.
