Following on from the Academy of Ancient Music's concert Music from the Dark Side directed by Pavlo Beznosiuk (see my interview with Pavlo to talk about it), the Academy of Ancient Music are returning to Milton Court Concert Hall on 20 November 2015 for another concert in their From Darkness to Light series. This is the complementary concert to the previous one, and Bojan Cicic directs the ensemble in Angels and Saints, a programme inspired by visions of the spirit world and the promise of the after-life.

The programme includes Vivaldi's concertos "per la Solennitá di S Lorenzo", "il Riposo per il S Natale" and "S Lingua di S Antonio di Padova", and his sonata "Sancto Sepolcro", Biber's Passacaglia for unaccompanied violin "Guardian Angel" from his Rosary Sonatas and two sonatas "Sancti Spiritus" and "Paschalis", written in 1666 by Vejvanovsky, the greatest trumpet virtuoso of his age, plus music by Leclair and Manfredini.

Full information from the Academy of Ancient Music website. The concert will also be at Dorset County Museum, Dorchester on 25 November, and the Hall for Truro, Cornwall on 26 November, further details of the tour from the website.
