Les Violons du Roy, La Chapelle de Québec chamber choir and soloists received warm applause for their impressive performance of Henry Purcell’s rarely-performed King Arthur.

The stage of the Palais Montcalm was rather crowded on May 10 as more than 60 musicians, choristers and soloists gathered to present Henry Purcell’s masterpiece, King Arthur, or the British Worthy (Z. 628), a work that is rarely performed in concert.
