Like as the Lute

Live at Holy Trinity Church, Rotherhithe, SE16 5HF. 

Lutenist Peter Martin and Countertenor Tristram Cooke perform music for lute and voice from the golden age of English song, with ayres by Dowland, Campion and Rosseter alongside instrumental works.


About the performers

Tristram Cooke is a lay vicar at Westminster Abbey. After graduating from Kings College London, he was awarded a scholarship to the two-year MA in Performance at the Royal Academy of Music, from where he graduated with Distinction in 2016. Solo work includes both Bach Passions, Christmas Oratorio, Cantatas BWV 170 “Vergnügte Ruh” and 82 “Ich habe genug”, and the Mass in B Minor, Vivaldi’s Nisi Dominus, Handel’s Athalia, and Israel in Egypt, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, and Scarlatti’s Totus amore languens, as well as the role of ‘Matto’ in the rarely performed opera Lo Spedale by an anonymous C17 Italian composer for Musica Antica Rotherhithe.


He sings regularly with the Tallis Scholars and the choir of the Age of Enlightenment, and has also sung with the Gabrieli Consort, Oxford Voices, De Profundis, Siglo de Oro, the Sixteen Le Concert d’Astrée and Arcangelo, with whom he is due to perform in this year’s Prom season.


Peter Martin started playing the guitar as a child living in Spain and took up the lute at sixteen. He studied music at the Royal College of Music junior department and as an undergraduate at Cambridge.


Performing highlights have included solo concerts for the national lute societies of England, France, Germany, Netherlands and Spain, and a tour of Japan as a member of the Chuckerbutty Ocarina Quartet. He is now a director of the classical music agency Intermusica and gives regular concerts on lute and theorbo with the London-based group Musica Antica Rotherhithe, including several live-streamed concerts over the last year.

Please note: this concert will run with a reduced capacity audience, to allow for 1-metre social distancing between groups. Wearing masks throughout the performance is advised.
