I just got this email today from Matthew Hall and so I thought I’d pass it along to the rest of you. There are three concerts he’s involved with, starting tonight, that help wrap up SoHIP.
I warmly invite you to attend one of this week’s performances of sacred music of Henry Purcell and his contemporaries Matthew Locke and John Blow. The music is ravishing: we will perform some of the better-known gems including Purcell’s O dive Custos and The Blessed Virgin’s Expostulation, as well as some recently rediscovered pieces including Purcell’s full anthem I was glad and Locke’s graduation ode Descende caelo. It has been a real pleasure to work with my collaborators in preparing this program. I hope you will come and share it with us.
Dates and venues are:

320 Boston Post Rd.
Wednesday, August 1, 8pm
