Biber: the Glorious Mysteries

Saturday 12 May 2018, 7.30pm

St Dominic’s Priory, Southampton Road, London NW5 4LB

The third of three concerts in which Nicolette Moonen (violin) and Pawel Siwczak (organ) perform all of the Rosary Sonatas by H.I.F. Biber (1644–1704) – by candle light, in the appropriate side-chapels at St Dominic’s, and in the appropriate liturgical season. In this concert they play the third cycle of sonatas, concerned with the resurrection of Christ and the events that surrounded it. Pawel Siwczak will also play organ music by composers of Biber’s time. After the concert (which runs for about an hour), the Dominican friars invite the audience for drinks, and there will be time to look at the wonderful interior architecture of St Dominic’s. Families with children are very welcome to attend.
