Apart from (!) recording two CDs in London during January, we have had a fairly quiet start to the year. From tomorrow, when rehearsals for our next project take place, all that begins to change.
On Monday evening we make a long-awaited return to the Wigmore Hall with a Monteverdi programme.
Monteverdi’s monumental collection of sacred vocal works, published in Venice in 1640 and 1641 as Selva morale e spirituale, stands among the great treasures of baroque music. This concert includes the spectacular motet Beatus vir, an uplifting Gloria, and two mighty settings of Psalm 109, Dixit Dominus, for eight voices and instruments.
Next Wednesday, we give our ever-popular Immortal Legacy programme at the Anvil in Basingstoke: tickets can be purchased here.
