In this third concert in Royal Birmingham Conservatoire’s year-long celebration of the 350th anniversary of François Couperin’s birth, students from Early Music, Vocal and Recorder departments present a programme that includes two recent discoveries (a cantata and two convivial canons), plus a selection of harpsichord pieces. As appropriate to Saint Cecilia’s day, it also includes a new reconstruction of Couperin’s Cecilian motet.
