Glorious Baroque

Sunday 29 March 2015, 6pm
St John sub Castro, Abinger Place, Lewes

Baroque Collective Singers
John Hancorn, conductor
The Baroque Collective
Nicholas Houghton, chamber organ

Vivaldi: Magnificat
Scarlatti: Stabat Mater
Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri

The Baroque Collective Singers and their conductor John Hancorn present a glorious concert of Baroque choral music. Domenico Scarlatti’s ten-part Stabat Mater is one of the great masterworks of the time, featuring soaring vocal lines and plangent harmonies. The Magnificat is one of Vivaldi's best-loved choral  works, brought to life in this performance by a quartet of string players from the Baroque Collective playing authentic Baroque instruments alongside the Baroque Collective Singers. Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri is a wonderful cycle of seven cantatas each addressed to a different part of Christ’s crucified body and will feature solos by members of the choir.

Tickets: £10 (under 16s free) available from Lewes Tourist Information Centre (tel: 01273 483448) or on the door
