About the Event
In 1678, Thomas Britton, a coal merchant, became an unlikely hero in the history of classical music. Inviting an eclectic audience of music lovers to climb into his coal attic, Britton ran one of the earliest concert series in London. Championing music by composers from all over Europe, his attic became a social hub of cosmopolitan music making. This concert brings some of Britton’s Greats, amongst them pieces by Hasse, Purcell, Corelli, Handel, Lully, Pepusch and D'Urfey.
