ST CANICE's CATHEDRAL



 

KILKENNY

TICKETS ON SALE SOON

Music in honour of St Canice...

Resurgam’s programme for the patronal festival of St Canice’s Cathedral, Kilkenny, is based around the plainsong office for St Canice, found in a large fifteenth century chant antiphoner held in Trinity College Dublin.

 

TICKETS ON SALE SOON

The plainsong antiphons and hymns are interspersed with motets by Schein, Schütz, Monterverdi and Bach. The poetically-inspired figurative language of the early-mid baroque forms a rich foil to the monody of the chant. The motets by Schein and Schütz are drawn from Fontana Israel : Israelis Brünnlein (Leipzig 1623), and Geistliche Chormusik (Dresden 1648), respectively.

ST MARY'S CATHEDRAL

 

LIMERICK

TICKETS ON SALE SOON

For the Sunday before Advent...

Resurgam is thrilled to be fulfilling the function of “midwife”, in launching an exciting new ensemble, Galway's new baroque string band Vespera. Under the leadership and tutelage of renowned baroque specialist Claire Duff, the group comprises the world-class string players who have made their home in and around Galway, and who have enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to “branch out” into baroque!

 

TICKETS ON SALE SOON

Vespera and Resurgam are together presenting a programme in the Abendmusik series in St Nicholas' Collegiate Church in Galway, and with an additional performance in St Mary's Cathedral, Limerick, on the previous evening. In Limerick we will be joined by our new partner choirs Sagittarius and St Mary's Cathedral Choir. We are delighted to be working with such a talented group of singers, under the direction of St Mary's organist Peter Barley. 

In what we hope will be the model for future Abendmusik concerts, the programme is built around cantatas by J.S. Bach and Dietrich Buxtehude, in this case both seasonally and liturgically appropriate for the Sunday before Advent. Woven into the programme will be motets by Hammerschmidt, Purcell, Handl, Schütz, Praetorius and Scheidt.

Hammerschmidt, Motet Mache die Tore weit

J. G. Walther, Prelude Wachet auf ruft uns die stimme

Chorale Wachet auf ruft uns die stimme
