This lunchtime concert features a selection of Baroque-era songs including works by Purcell and Charpentier, performed by the exceptional soprano Clara Orif, until recently and Oxford Song Young Artist. We also explore the Choix de Chansons, a luxury songbook by Jean-Benjamin Laborde, as part of our focus on musical scores as artworks. These little-known but extremely attractive songs were published in an elaborately bound and richly illustrated edition in 1773. This lecture-recital takes place in the Upper Library, the architectural ‘jewel in the crown’ of The Queen’s College.
