Concert: Music at Oxford (Friday 2 March 2018, 7.30 pm)

The story of the crucifixion of Christ has inspired some of the finest choral music ever written. This programme is a snapshot of the events of Good Friday when Christ was nailed to the Cross whilst his mother stood weeping. Lotti, most famous for his eight-part setting of the Crucifixus, is represented here by his even more searing ten-part version which contrasts with the intense but cool eight-part Stabat mater of Palestrina, which made such an impact on Wagner that he produced his own edition. The Tenebrae Responsories draw on the words of the Old Testament to place the Holy Week events in context. Victoria’s settings are without equal for emotional directness and clarity. Two iconic pieces complete this programme. Allegri’s famous setting of the Miserere with its high soprano Cs and Domenico Scarlatti’s fabulous ten-part Stabat mater, a landmark in its own time which takes the mixes the long lines of Renaissance polyphony with the new expressive harmonies of the Baroque period.
