The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary are five episodes in the Passion of Christ, given wordless meditation in Heinrich Biber’s sonatas for scordatura violin. Fiona Hughes and Sarah Darling will perform the violin sonatas, joined by Wesley Hall (organ), Sam Suggs (baroque bass), Loren Ludwig (viola da gamba), and William Simms (theorbo), who will also perform the work of Carl Friedrich Abel and Johann Hieronymous Kapsberger, Passion chorales from Bach's St John and St Matthew Passion; and a rarely-performed solo from Berliner Gambenbuch.Learn More &
