Italian Sacred Music from Renaissance to Baroque
St Mary & St Nicholas Church, Wilton, Salisbury, SP2 0DL
Sat 14th May 2022
Cambridge Renaissance Voices return to the Italianate church in Wilton for a feast of Italian Renaissance and Baroque music. The programme features choral polyphony from Palestrina, Lotti’s searing Crucifixus, and works by Monteverdi, including extracts from the Vespers of 1610. The centrepiece of this programme is a performance of Carissimi’s oratorio Jephte, with soprano Kate Semmens singing the part of Jephte’s daughter, and a continuo ensemble including lutenist Lynda Sayce on theorbo, and Joanna Levine of Fretwork on bass viol.
Cambridge Renaissance Voices was formed in 2013 from a group of singers most of whom met in the Cambridge Taverner Choir, with whom they have made a number of CD recordings, including Music from Renaissance Portugal, shortlisted for the Gramophone Early Music Award. In addition to an annual concert in Long Melford in Suffolk and regular appearances at Waltham Abbey, the choir has performed in venues from St Cross, Winchester to Sherborne Abbey and Boxgrove Priory.
‘assured and expressive… the singers showed understanding and passion… a very moving experience for the appreciative audience’
