Charlie’s Angels: Music from the Court of Charles II

GARRY CLARKE, artistic director

“an abundance of style, a crisp esprit de corps and a palpable affection for its repertory”
– Chicago Tribune

“Chicago’s Baroque Band . . . is making waves in the early music world, for its style, verve, fine balances and unstuffy scholarship”
—Chicago Classical Review

In 1660, Charles II returned from exile in France as Monarch of England. While in France, he became a great admirer of Louis XIV’s band, Les Vingt-quatre Violins du Roi. Back in England, it wasn’t long before Charlie had his own band of angels, with the same name! Chicago’s dynamic, young Baroque Band will recreate the era of Charles II with grand celebratory music by Purcell, Grabu, Blow, and Croft.
