In the historic setting of the Great Chamber at the Charterhouse, the London Handel Players are joined by talented young singers from the Royal College of Music in this exquisite hour-long programme of chamber music, including Bach’s cantata specifically written for this day, Palm Sunday.
The Charterhouse is one of London’s great survivors, with over 660 years of history to its name. Over the centuries, the Charterhouse has been a monastery, a great Tudor mansion and a charity, functioning both as an almshouse and school, and charitable work remains the Charterhouse’s main purpose, offering a community for elderly people in financial and social need.
