2019 Vancouver Bach Festival Closes with Purcell’s Celebratory Ode: ‘Hail Bright Cecilia’

“Purcell is one of the greatest composers of the Baroque period and Hail Bright Cecilia is arguably one of his greatest works. He is unique among his contemporaries for his ability to blend the stylistic and technical conventions of his time, and to transcend them with what is an extremely bold and expressive personal style,” explains PBO Music Director Alexander Weimann.
