    Songs through the ages
    A celebration of English repertoire from the Baroque era to today

    Dowland  Come again, Flow my tears, Can she excuse my wrongs, Now O Now I needs must part
    Purcell  Strike the viol, Music for a while, Dido’s lament, An evening hymn
    Bernstein  Excerpts from West Side Story
    Beatles  Something, Let it be, Blackbird, Imagine, All you need is love
    Dunford  Blind man, That’s so you, We are the ocean, Love will find a way, Sometimes 

    Thomas Dunford appears to be equally relaxed in any number of formations – with the most historically informed conductors of our time (William Christie, John Eliot Gardiner, Philippe Herreweghe, etc.), at the helm of the Jupiter Ensemble founded seven years ago as a duo with Lea Desandre, or flying solo and taking on Bach. This talented string player has been dubbed the “Eric Clapton of the lute” (BBC Music Magazine). As a writer-composer-performer, he has devised a programme blending Purcell with the Beatles, and Dowland with Bernstein. This journey through eras and styles will conclude with his own songs influenced by jazz, baroque, and pop. And, who knows, perhaps a jam session as an encore? Nothing would surprise us!
