World Premiere of Isabella's Banquet by BBC Singers

On Friday 13th October, the BBC Singers are conducted by Nicholas Chalmers in the world premiere of Piers Hellawell’s Isabella’s Banquet, a song book of pieces to texts taken from Mrs Beeton’s 1861 ‘Book of Household Management’. The concert is in St Paul’s, Knightsbridge at 7.30pm.

Hellawell’s selected texts deal not with her celebrated recipes but with Mrs Beeton's poetic recitation of exotic ingredients – teas, meats, spices etc – as well as the need for good habits such as taking cold baths. The programme is curated by Master of the Queen’s Music Judith Weir, and includes music by her, Finnissy, Furse and Carter as well as Mendelssohn and Wesley.
