Music for Galway & Galway 2020 present this concert in association with the Galway Early Music Festival.
Resurgam | English Cornett & Sackbut Ensemble | Mark Duley director
Johann Rosenmüller - Vespers | Sean Doherty - Hail! Gladdening Light (world premiere).
Resurgam brings the colourful and virtuosic beauty of his concerted vocal music to Ireland for the first time, with a collation of Latin psalm-concerti, each a mini-cantata. The splendidly sonorous C minor Magnificat in eight parts caps a Vespers setting in the grand Venetian style.
Sean Doherty’s new work, setting an ancient Vesper hymn, forms a contrast in the centre of the programme.
