The chamber choir Convivium joins forces with the Stanford Baroque Soloists, under the direction of Anthony Martin, to present excerpts from Henry Purcell's sparkling masque, King Arthur. Famed for his exquisite melodies and masterful sensitivity to the English language, Purcell was widely considered the greatest English composer of the Restoration period. King Arthur contains some of his most memorable music, including the chilling chromaticism of the "Frost Scene" and the dance air "Fairest Isle."
