Dowland, Anon, Britten, Stephen Goss and Purcell

Wigmore Hall, London
36 Wigmore St, London W1

Carolyn Sampson soprano
Matthew Wadsworth lute

Carolyn Sampson and Matthew Wadsworth appear to share a sixth sense, connecting one to the other in performance to reach the deepest recesses of imagination and spiritual insight. Their lunchtime programme is fuelled by the vitality of English song, with its close relationship to folk art and poetry, and by the creative genius of Dowland, Purcell and Britten.
