We’re thrilled to visit the London Festival of Baroque Music to perform music for Marie Fel as part of the festival’s ‘Women in Baroque Music’. Marie Fel was the ‘adorable nightingale’ who held Parisian audiences spellbound during one of the most glorious periods in French music history and inspired the greatest composers of the day, and she is celebrated by a favourite modern-day nightingale in works by Rameau, Lalande, Mondonville and others.


Listen to excerpts from our acclaimed CD with Carolyn Sampson, A French Baroque Diva.
