A stunning video of Purcell’s piece from Theater Aachen:

Theater Aachen says: Music for a While by Henry Purcell. A piece whose title fits well at this time because after a little over two months we had to close our gates again with the 2. lockdown ′′ light ′′ heavy heart. But we’re confident that we’ll be able to play for you again soon! And most of all: Theatre and music as balm for the soul is so important especially in such times! So here’s some music for you from the singers from the ensemble of the Theater Aachen! Have fun & see you very soon, because behind the scenes we continue to rehearse!!

    Great music. Great singing.
    Many thanks.

  • Dragonetti says:

    Absolutely beautiful! I’m not usually a fan of this sort of arrangement but this one hits the nail right on the head. The subsequent silent video entitled “SANGUNDKLANGLOS” is poignant too. We can only look forward to better times.

    Here is Alfred Deller singing Music for a While, timeless and miles better.
