In Ecclesiis - 17th Century polychoral music
St Philip and St James' Church, Leckhampton, Cheltenham GL50 2DD
The Oriel singers are delighted to be collaborating with talented players of violins, cornetts and sackbuts! This combination of instruments blends magnificently with the sound of a choir.
The concert will include a reflective first half – Gesualdo O vos omnes, Schütz Selig sind die Toten – and finishing with Monteverdi’s glorious Beatus Vir. Also including Cessate tympana, cessate praelia by Maria Xaveria Peruchona.
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.
