ABC is looking forward to playing at the Garden Party benefit for the BFX. This time we are doing a condensed version of the Country Gardens program.  Nicola Matteis, who walked across Europe to England with a violin on his back under his cloak (was rich for a while and died a pauper), Tobias Hume, a soldier, (who died in poverty), Orlando Gibbons, organist and composer (died of a sudden apoplexy), John Jenkins (well loved by all), Daniel Purcell ( a mysterious relative of Henry), and Thomas Arne (Rule, Brittannia!). If you can not attend this event, we are performing the whole concert at a house concert in June.
