Henry Purcell Welcome to all the pleasures

Rhona Clarke O Vis Aeternitatis (World Première)

George Frederic Handel Dixit Dominus 

 

 

Serendipitously, our next Abendmusik of the season falls on the feast day of St Cecilia, patron saint of musicians. Purcell’s ode is the first of several he wrote in honour of the Roman martyr, and the themes it celebrates are the inspiration for the programme’s new work, Rhona Clarke’s setting of Hildegard’s extraordinary O vis aeternitatis, a celebration of the divinity of the created order. Handel’s jubilant psalm setting Dixit Dominus concludes the programme.

Over the Alps

**LIVE STREAMED IN 2021**

TO BE ANNOUNCED

St Nicholas' Collegiate Church

Galway.

As part of the Soundscapes Abendmusik series

Presented by Galway 2020 and Music for Galway

In Association with the Galway Early Music Festival.

 

 

Resurgam

The English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble

Mark Duley, director.

 

 

Johann Rosenmüller (1619-1684), Vespers:

Dixit Dominus

Laudete pueri Dominium

Seán Doherty, Hail! Gladdening Light

Laetatus sum

Magnificat

 

In his lifetime, Rosenmüller was considered one of Europe's greatest and most well-travelled musicians, and a key figure in bringing Italian musical ideas to Germany. Thus his music looks both ways across the Alps: grandiloquent Venetian splendour meeting Teutonic contrapuntal discipline.  Resurgam brings the colourful and virutosic beauty of his concerted vocal music to Ireland for the first time, with a collation of Latin psalm-concerti, each a mini-cantata.  The spendidly sonorous C minor Magnificat in eight parts caps a Vespers setting in the grand Venetian style.

 

Sean Doherty's new work, setting an ancient Vesper hymn, forms a contrast in the centre of the programme.
