A Festive Venetian Spectacular
directed by Peter Seymour
Join us for a truly celebratory opening to the 2013 festival inspired by the genius of Gabrieli, Monteverdi, Schütz and Praetorius in 17th century Venice. Using the acoustics of St Mark's, these composers revelled in setting instruments against voices to maximize the sonorities and theatrical 'effect' of their work.
Highlights include Gabrieli's In ecclesiis and Jubilate Deo, Praetorius Wachet auf, Schütz Magnificat à 8 and Monteverdi psalms from Selve morale.
