SATURDAY 16 JANUARY 2016, 7.30pm, St Andrew's & St George's West
Le Jardin Secret The Paradise Tree

Romina Lischka viola da gamba; Jadran Duncomb theorbo; Sarah Ridy baroque harp; Elizabeth Dobbin soprano

The book of Revelation's image of the tree of life, laden with fruit and healing the wounds and sorrows of the warring nations with the balm of its leaves, is a profound, poetic image of love and restoration.

In this programme of sacred and secular Italian music for the soul by Caccini, Carissimi and Kapsberger among others, Le Jardin Secret explore the contrasting dimensions of the tree as a symbol of the balm of life, the joy of creation and the pain of suffering and death.

"Beautiful gamba playing of Romina Lischka... Elizabeth Dobbin's expressive soprano gives almost continual pleasure" Gramophone
