Ensemble Hesperi is a young, dynamic period ensemble specialising in both Scottish Baroque music and hidden musical gems of eighteenth-century London. Join them for a concert celebrating the lives of musicians who lived and worked near the Temple Church in the 1700s. The programme will feature a set of jigs composed for each of the four Inns of Court and a sparkling trio sonata by Purcell, alongside some lesser known, but no less intriguing, Scottish composers.

Please note the change of venue for this concert due to the overrunning building works in the Inner Temple

"Ensemble Hesperi, like the jolly band of some great Laird, embody high-quality Baroque Scottish music. The rapport between these players was obvious, as was their infectious enjoyment in the music."
