Concert: Merton College, Oxford (Friday 12 April 2019, 8.00 pm)

This programme features some of the most famous and powerful music written for Holy Week including the iconic Miserere by Allegri with its legendary top Cs and Palestrina’s eight-part setting of the Stabat mater which so captivated Richard Wagner. Included also is a portion of Victoria’s Tenebrae Responsories designed for Good Friday and two rarely heard masterpieces – a 10-part setting of the Crucifixus by Antonio Lotti and an eight part meditation by Giovanni Croce. The first half culminates with Thomas Tallis’ penitential 40-part tour de force, Spem in alium with singers from Merton College choir, whilst the second half is given over to Domenico Scarlatti’s finest choral work – a setting of the quintessential Holy Week text, the Stabat mater, for ten voices.
