Music for Easter

Boccherini’s Stabat Mater, composed in 1781, is the core work in a deeply moving programme as we prepare for Easter. It is complemented by movements from Haydn’s Seven Last Words of 1785 and earlier music by Johann Fischer (1646-1716). The Bach Players return to Warwick for their eleventh visit in seventeen years.
