Dorothee Mields, soprano; Sumner Thompson, baritone; Marc Destrubé, leading the instrumental ensemble

German early music star soprano Dorothee Mields returns to Vancouver for a shared recital of seventeenth and early eighteenth-century North German sacred music with American baritone, Sumner Thompson. Marc Destrubé leads an ensemble of solo strings, gambas and a full continuo section.

“No present-day singer understands German sacred music of the seventeenth century better than the soprano Dorothee Mields and, unsurprisingly therefore, no one sings it better.” – International Record Review

A collaboration with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra and the Pacific Baroque Festival in Victoria
