Tenor Ian Bostridge and pianist Julius Drake celebrate a collaboration that stretches back 25 years with a concert at Middle Temple Hall on Wednesday 29 November 2017 as part of Temple Song. The programme of the concert echoes that of Bostridge and Drake's first collaboration as at Middle Temple Hall they will be joined by the Piatti String Quartet to perform RVW's On Wenlock Edge, a work Bostridge and Drake first performed together in 1992. The programme will be complete with Purcell’s The Queen’s Epicedium and The Holy Sonnets of John Donne by Benjamin Britten. Incidentally, over 70 volumes of John Donne's personal library are in the Rare Book and Manuscript Collection of Middle Temple Library.
