Candlelit Promenade Concert

Pellingman's SarabandProgramme

Enjoy strolling through the Hall, lit by many candles, and listen to music from the 17th - 20th centuries.

Pellingman’s Saraband   

We are pleased to again welcome this outstanding duo back to Kiplin Hall, where this evening they will play music from the 17th century.

 Jacob Heringman and Susanna Pell have been musical colleagues for almost 25 years and have both enjoyed distinguished careers; Jacob as a soloist and with many prominent period ensembles; Susanna as a freelance performer and member of the pioneering groups, Fretwork and The Dufay Collective.

 The viol and the lute are close cousins. There is much exquisite music written for each by some of the great composers of the Renaissance and Early Baroque periods and the two played together are 'greater than the sum of the parts', as one reviewer said recently.

Their new CD, Twenty Waies upon the Bells, is on sale in Kiplin’s shop.
