Johann Rosenmüller (1619-1684), Vespers:

Dixit Dominus

Laudete pueri Dominium

Laetatus sum

Magnificat

Seán Doherty, Hail! Gladdening Light - World Première

 

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 virtuosic beauty of his concerted vocal music to Ireland for the first time, with a collation of Latin psalm-concerti, each a mini-cantata.  The splendidly 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.
