A concert to celebrate the 350th anniversary of John Wilson’s death, bringing together highlights of his musical output from his exceptionally long career, alongside those of some of his close associates, Lanier, Johnson, Hume, Jenkins and the Lawes brothers. Wilson was one of the most famous and prominent musicians and singers of the Stuart age; a man who was well known and well liked in the theatre, court, university, and the chapel royal. A prolific composer of over 300 songs, some of them from famous staged productions by Shakespeare and Fletcher that resulted from his long service to the King’s Men Company, for which he started his London career as a boy singer at the Blackfriars theatre. As the third Heather Professor of Music in Oxford he did much to rebuilt music making in Oxford after the civil war, we showcase his music and that of other leading lights of the early English Baroque.

Please note this concert will take place in the Small Chapel at 38 St Giles, Oxford, OX1 3LW
