Rediscovering Suffolk’s Baroque Music
The spectacular Eboracum Baroque are performing at Moyse’s Hall this March 16th, presenting a programme of music based around Suffolk composers from the 18th century. Hear music by Suffolk composers, Joseph Gibbs and John Carr that has not been heard in over 250 years!
The concert will include Violin Sonatas written by Joseph Gibbs who worked for the majority of his life in Suffolk (he was organist at St Mary-le-Tower in Ipswich) and also vocal music by John Carr. Alongside these lesser known composers, hear great music by their contemporaries including George Frederick Handel.
