WEM collaborates with the Oriel Singers

Date(s) - 7th Mar 2020

This concert is a collaboration with the Oriel Singers from Cheltenham conducted by Ben Sawyer with Worcestershire Early Music – we have  organised some instrumentalists (violins, cornetts and sackbuts) to join the singers for In Ecclesiis – a programme of 17th century polyphonic music from across Europe.

The concert will include a reflective first half – de Padilla’s Missa Ego flos campi, Gesualdo O vos omnes, Schütz Selig sind die Toten – and finishing with Monteverdi’s glorious Beatus Vir.

In the second half there’s more Monteverdi and Schütz plus Giovanni Gabrieli’s Jubilate Deo and In Ecclesiis, after which the concert is named.  See below for the full programme.

Tickets available via the Oriel Singers website.
