James Bowman, the doyen of English countertenors, returns to Wiltshire to perform this brilliantly conceived concert of Canticles by Britten, interspersed with songs by Purcell.

James, with established local tenor Hugh Hetherington and international virtuoso pianist Nicholas Walker, will present some of Benjamin Britten’s most affecting output, which the composer produced between 1949  and 1971.

This concert of music by two of Britain’s greatest composers  has been greeted rapturously elsewhere, and we are delighted to welcome James Bowman and his friends to Farley for the first concert of the Farley Music Festival 2013.
