BCSD's first Bach at Noon program of the season juxtaposes instrumental and vocal works of Henry Purcell with those of his older, lesser-known contemporary John Blow. Blow's masque Venus and Adonis paved the way for Purcell's Dido and Aeneas only a few years later, and both men held the post of organist at Westminster Abbey in the last decades of the 17th century. Together, Purcell and Blow represent a final flowering of a homegrown English baroque style prior to the arrival of Handel in 1710.
