From soaring madrigals to instrumental performances, enjoy a concert of Renaissance and Baroque music given by early music ensemble, Musica Antica.

Founded in 2016, the group performs rarely heard music from the 15th-18th centuries. This concert features work by composer Nicholas Lanier. A Greenwich resident, Lanier was the court musician to Charles I.

This landmark event is thought to mark the first time that Lanier's music has been performed in the Queen's House since the 17th century – possibly the only time since he performed there himself. The concert includes pieces by the composers who inspired and were contemporaries of Lanier, including Claudio Monteverdi and Alfonso Ferrabosco II. 

Join Musica Antica for a night of musical delights, set in the architectural splendour of the Great Hall.
