1.00 We Must Get Together Some Time
Solo arias may account for many operatic highlights, but where would we be without ensembles? The action is in the interaction - or sometimes, just as in real life, the lack of it. Gordon Stewart introduces three programmes in which operatic characters get together to agree, disagree, further the plot or to hold it up with needless bickering.

Thomas Durfey was one of the most versatile musical personalities of the Restoration as a composer, player, singer, collector, writer, publisher and entrepreneur. Friendly with all the great figures of the time, Durfey is the model affectionately parodied as the drunken (and stammering) poet in Purcell's The Fairy Queen. Today, he is best known for the great collection of popular songs and ballads Pills to
Purge Melancholy that went on to feed The Beggar's Opera and its successors. With contributions from
Richard Luckett , Andrew Pinnock , Roger Savage , Don Taylor and Christopher Wheatley. Repeat
