A Baroque feast with music either written in Venice or connected to Venice.
The concert will be accompanied by our conductor, Andrew Daldorph, on the organ with a string quartet.
Vivaldi’s Magnificat is just as interesting as his famous Gloria but less well known and the wonderful Schütz setting of O Bone Jesu in 7 parts is included as he studied in Venice as a young man under Giovanni Gabrieli. Monteverdi was Gabrieli’s successor in Venice in 1612 and the choir will sing two celebrated motets by him; Psalm 117, Laudate Dominum omnes gentes and Christe, Adoramus te.
Tickets are £12, and £6 for full-time students and accompanied children under 16.
Tickets are available in advance from Exeter Chamber Choir:
