Saturday 14 October 2017
Pamoja Hall 7.30pm
With Vivace and The English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble
Director of Music: Robin Walker
Born in Cremona, Monteverdi was a composer and court musician particularly known for books of madrigals and operas. His work transitions from Renaissance polyphony to Baroque melody including pioneering techniques such as bass continuo. The Vesperis in Festis Beata Mariae Vergine, more casually known as the Vespers of 1610, was his first sacred work in nearly 30 years reflecting a blend of both styles. In scale it represents one of the most ambitious works of religious music written before Bach. It is a large, complex and ground-breaking piece noted for its brilliance and power.
Special guest soloists will perform with The Cantate Choir and we will be joined by Vivace and The English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble for what promises to be a wonderful evening.
