Event Details

Scintillating choral treasures from the time of Botticelli and Caravaggio, including works by Victoria, Palestrina, and Scarlatti


The Renaissance Choir will perform heavenly sacred works, earthly madrigals and drinking songs from Renaissance Italy.

It’s our belief that 15th – 17th century Europe was the birthplace of the most beautiful music ever written. This artistic flowering took place across the whole of Europe: in music, painting, sculpture and literature. In our series of ‘Renaissance Masters’ concerts we transport our audiences back in time, displaying the greatest music and paintings of the Renaissance.

Our concert includes Victoria’s final work and masterpiece, Officium Defunctorum and other sacred pieces by Palestrina, Scarlatti and Caldara (some of which is in 8, 10 and even 16 parts!). By contrast we will create a vibrant Italian street-scene, including drinking songs, madrigals, and singers turning into animals!
