Fretwork bring the sonorities of a viol consort to the music of Bach, with inspiring results. Their programme culminates in a performance of the great Passacaglia, whose repeated bass line anchors some of Bachs most dazzling, imposing and inventive music. And interleaved with the music, poems by Emily Dickinson and Gerard Manley Hopkins about faith, doubt and the beauty of the natural world.

This is one of 55 events forming the Ryedale Summer Festival 2018.
