Handel & Companye
Works by Handel, Steffani, Bononcini and Geminiani
The Musicke Companye
Tim sang with The Musicke Companye from 1996 - 1999, enjoying three years of performing and discovering a wide variety of English and Italian chamber music from the early to late baroque periods. With them he toured extensively in the UK and gave concerts and London's Wigmore Hall. Tim says: "It was a really energising environment discovering a wide variety of pre-18th Century chamber repertoire and discussing and developing ideas about the music. I had a lot of fun in the staging of concerts and, as a solo artist experimenting with the different nuances of style in the recording." Tim sings Italian Cantatas and duets by Handel and his close contemporaries, Steffani and Bononcini.
