“Carolyn Sampson’s soprano sparkles and Iestyn Davies’s countertenor glides through the air” says The Guardian. Join these two world-class singers in this ravishing joint song recital spanning four centuries, two countries and a whole world of human emotion. The meeting of their voices, combined with their individual interpretations of the music, reveal something unique in everything they sing.
