The Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment and Nicholas Cleobury perform live from the City of London Festival, celebrating Judith Bingham’s 60th birthday with a world première of her piece, The Hythe. Bingham was commissioned to write the piece as a partner to her organ concerto, Jacob’s Ladder – both works use the same number of strings in a small ensemble. To complement the new work from Bingham, the concert also includes Handel’s Organ Concerto No. 15 in D, which uses a similar string ensemble to accompany the soloist. The concert concludes with the addition of countertenor Andrew Radley and soprano Claire Seaton, who will perform Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater.
