Sarah Vanstone

This week's programme is topped and tailed by Easter music - to start, Pergolesi's famous Stabat Mater sung by Emma Kirkby and James Bowman , and to end, the final Amen from Handel's
Messiah from a highly acclaimed new recording. In between, the music ranges from one of Monteverdi's erotic madrigals to Purcell's songs and his theatre music.
