Wiseman has over 200 film and television soundtracks to her name, including Wilde, Wolf Hall, Father Brown, Edie and Dickensian.
With some of the country's finest musicians, the Locrian Ensemble is at the very top of its game, delivering stunning performances which range from the blisteringly dramatic to the heartrendingly mournful.
The concert roughly follows the narrative of the television series, with Lesser's readings setting the scene for a musical commentary. The most intense segment must surely be the depiction of Anne Boleyn's execution, as the impassioned readings leave the audience hanging on every word, with music that is gripping and moving in equal parts.
The expectation is high for the final part of the trilogy – hopefully audiences will not have too long to wait before this absorbing and beautifully realised production is on screen again.
