Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment - The Voice Doctor - Online Event

JC Bach Es ist das Heil uns kommen her
JS Bach Es ist das Heil uns kommen her BWV 9
Lassus Musica Dei Donum
Graupner Overture in E major

with ‘Voice Doctor’ Declan Costello, reading Orlando Gibbons’ The Silver Swan

The Music:
This cantata is all about healing and enlightenment, reflecting on humanity’s salvation by God’s grace alone. The dramatic weight of this music is emphasised by the voice of Christ in three sermon-like solos, performed by Rising Star bass Dominic Sedgwick.

The Science: 
‘Voice Doctor’ Declan Costello shares with us the mysterious world of vocal anatomy. He will discuss the findings of Public Health England’s study into the transmission of viral particles by singers and musicians so that we can enlighten ourselves about the safety of particle transmission. Brace yourself for some up close and personal pictures of vocal cords, too!

Watch The Voice Doctor on Sunday 30th August at 11:30am from the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s YouTube channel.
