Timothy Roberts writes: an unusual early music concert on 22 July at which F. Couperin's three Leçons de ténèbres will be sung by Dame Emma Kirkby and Emily Atkinson, alternating with my own four Jeremiads for alto saxophone played by Michael Gingold. The venue is St Saviour's Church near Chalk Farm, where I have put on some ten small-scale concerts over three years, sometimes losing money and sometimes making a small profit. This concert is third of four called "Couperin Plus" which celebrate the 350th anniversary of the great composer's birth by programming his music in unusual contexts, in this case alongside new pieces for saxophone. A friend is sponsoring Dame Emma's fee (£250) and I wish to pay the other musicians the same.
