The combined forces of the world-renowned Academy of Ancient Music, students from the Historical Performance department of Guildhall School of Music & Drama and the Choristers of Canterbury Cathedral recreate music from the Austro-Bohemian baroque, some of the richest sounds of the time, embracing the music of the famed Hapsburg Empire. A first half of sparkling violin virtuosity (including Pachabel’s famous Canon!), is followed by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber’s monumental Requiem in F minor.
