Tickets are available now at Oxboffice for the next exciting concert in our 2015 series. We are delighted to be welcoming Andrew Parrott as guest director for this project which will feature a performance of Missa Superba by Johann Kerll, a composer and teacher very well known in mid to late C17th Vienna, loyally supported in his work by Emperor Leopold I. Kerll’s music and compositional skill was admired – and copied- by composers much more familiar today, including JS Bach and Handel. There will be a full supporting programme of works by other composers associated with Vienna at the time, accompanied by a band of violins, sackbuts and continuo. More detailed information very soon!
Amor vince ogni cosa information and tickets are available here. The venue is perfect for this repertoire – a clear resonant acoustic, which means also that it is relatively small. Please be sure to book soon if you would like to be there.
Tickets will be available soon for Amor vince ogni cosa on March 1st at 6.30 pm in Culmstock’s All Saints Church – a really good acoustic for this concert of intimate secular Renaissance music for voices and instruments. Music by Monteverdi, d’India and M-A Charpentier accompanied by violins, gamba and theorbo, with principal director JanJoost van Elburg
2014’s recipient of the York Early Music Festival Lifetime Achievement Award and BEMP’s guest director Andrew Parrott will be leading the programme in Wellington’s St. John the Baptist Church on Monday May 4th at 6.30 pm. He will introduce an influential teacher and composer, Johann Caspar Kerll, whose work was highly thought of – so good it was borrowed by Bach and Handel!
GRAND BAROQUE 2 is on Monday August 31st at 7.30 in Exeter Cathedral under principal director JanJoost van Elburg and will feature spectacular baroque works by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber, Missa Allelujah a 24 and Vespers a 32 with a full supporting programme. Diary the date!
