In the early 17th century, an English tourist wrote of a performance he witnessed in Venice that it was ‘so good, so delectable, so rare, so admirable, so super excellent… that I was for the time even rapt up with Saint Paul unto the third heaven’. This programme features multi-choir music for voices, sackbuts, cornetts, dulcians, bajoncillos, theorbos and organ from Venice - but also other places the style spread to: Germany, Catalonia, Peru – even dull old England! I Fagiolini, The 24 and ECSE have previously worked together in Striggio’s 40-part mass and Monteverdi 1610 Vespers: this will similarly be an occasion not to miss.
